The United States, Britain and Australia have agreed on a defense and security partnership – AUKUS, under which Australia will build nuclear powered submarines for the first time in history.

Air Force analysts explain that Australia and its allies are worried about the growing military presence of China in the Indo-Pacific region.

As part of the AUKUS partnership, Australia will receive nuclear submarine technology from its allies and will become the seventh country in the world to have such a fleet.

The PRC Embassy in Washington called on the alliance members to abandon the Cold War mentality.
