1 min read

On Wednesday, US President Joe Biden announced a new defense pact between the US, UK and Australia, known as AUKUS, to share advanced technologies, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

Politico reported that the agreement will help the three countries share expertise in artificial intelligence, cyber underwater systems and long-range capabilities as well as result in Australia obtaining an American-made “conventionally armed” nuclear powered submarine.

“As leaders of Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, guided by our enduring ideals and shared commitment to the international rules-based order, we resolve to deepen diplomatic, security, and defense cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region, including by working with partners, to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century,” Joint leaders from all three countries said in a statement. “As part of this effort, we are announcing the creation of an enhanced trilateral security partnership called ‘AUKUS.'”

According to these world leaders, this treaty will strengthen stability in the Indo-Pacific region.
