The US, UK, and Australia have announced a new trilateral security formation of AUKUS – Australia, United Kingdom, and the United States partnership. The US and UK will help Australia develop nuclear-powered submarines to reinforce Australia’s naval power in the Indo-Pacific region and secure peace and stability in the area.
The American President Biden said, “We need to be able to address both the current strategic environment in the region and how it may evolve, because the future of each of our nations and indeed the world, depends on a free and open Indo-Pacific enduring and flourishing in the decades ahead.”
None of the three leaders mentioned China, but it was obvious that the initiative was to counter China’s increasing threat.
The White House said in a statement that an 18-month effort would begin “to seek an optimal pathway to deliver this capability…We will leverage expertise from the United States and the United Kingdom, building on the two countries’ submarine programs to bring an Australian capability into service at the earliest achievable date.”
In addition, AUKUS will also seek to enhance joint capabilities and interoperability in “cyber capabilities, artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, and additional undersea capabilities.” This trilateral collaboration indicates that the United States’ intention to maintain a strong force around the world remains unchanged.
