US signs new security pact with Australia and UK Foreign

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison spoke of an “increased” partnership. “A partnership in which our technology, scientists, companies and armed forces all work together to create a safe zone. It benefits everyone.”

Australia should immediately benefit from this close cooperation. “The first task of this partnership will be to help Australia acquire a fleet of nuclear-powered submarines,” said British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He spoke of a “new chapter” in the friendly relations between the countries.

The French Naval Group calls it a “great disappointment” that the Australians choose to work alongside the Americans and the British. The French company hoped to deliver diesel- and electric-powered submarines worth more than €31 billion to Australia. The Naval Group said on Thursday that this would not happen because of the new collaboration AUKUS.

Media in Australia and the United States had already published about the new partnership. Insiders told news site Politico that the initiative is seen as a way to build a united front against China, although that country will not be explicitly mentioned in the agreements.

US President Joe Biden said cooperation with the British and Australians should make it possible to tackle the “challenges of the 21st century” together. He described the establishment of the Auks as a “historic step” and pointed out that the armies of the countries had fought shoulder to shoulder during the two world wars.

Sources had told Politico that the partnership would provide for advanced technologies to be shared. During his speech, Biden confirmed that AUKUS also aims to ensure that the country maintains its lead in the military sector and in the development of ‘critical’ technologies, for example in the field of artificial intelligence.
