France need escorts for their Carrier so they turn to Australia. I wonder why they didnt ask Italy or Spain ?

I didn't read it that way at all.  It was more like "if we're around, why don't we play together on exercise?"  Also, he said it in the context of the Indian Ocean, so it would make sense for Australian ships instead of other European ones.

France is still actively engaged in the Pacific, and French forces are regular participants in ADF led exercises.  It's not a surprising development.

A not insignificant part of the Pacific, and the Indian, is part of France.  More so than the UK.  It's as appropriate for the French to be working with Australia as it is for the UK or US.
