Sept 20 (Reuters) - European Union foreign ministers will discuss later on Monday Australia's scrapping of a submarine order with France, a spokesperson for the European Commission said.

The meeting will take place on the sidelines of the United Nations general assembly in New York, the spokesperson told reporters in Brussels, responding to questions on possible repercussions for EU trade talks with Australia.

"We are analysing the impact of the AUKUS announcement and what this impact would be on this schedule," another Commission spokesperson said, referring to the planned next round of negotiations with Australia scheduled in October.
