Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian made this announcement in Parliament.

Paris, France:

France said on Wednesday that its ambassador to Australia would return to his post, ending a diplomatic protest over Canberra’s decision to cancel the contract to buy French submarines.

France withdrew its envoy to Australia on 17 September, but Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told Parliament that he “has now asked our ambassador to return to Canberra with two objectives: our future with Australia.” Helping define the relationship … and firmly defend our interests in the implementation of Australia’s decision to end the submarine program.”
