The US, UK, and Australia announced a new military pact to counter China on Wednesday, Sep. 15th. On Thursday, Defense Minister Peter Dutton said more US military aircraft and troops will deploy to the country. After meeting with US Defense Secretary Austin, Australian Defense Minister Peter Dutton said that the US and Australia agreed to enhance “our force posture cooperation.” “This will include greater air cooperation through rotational deployments of all types of US military aircraft to Australia.” And he also hinted that Australia might host US medium-range missiles.
The CCP has ignored international law for a long time. China has expanded its territory and deployed military facilities and missile systems in the South China Sea, which seriously threatened the security of neighboring countries. To counter the CCP’s military expansion, Australia will play an important role in the US Pacific strategy. The Australian Prime Minister said that after nearly 18 months of discussion, the new defense alliance finally signed with the United States and Britain will be permanent. The nuclear-powered submarines Canberra gains from this new pact will give Australia more abilities to patrol sensitive areas like the South China Sea.
