A few days ago, US President Joe Biden spoke with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese at the US Naval Base in San Diego, California, about the so-called “security partnership”. trilateral between the United States, United Kingdom and Australia”, better known as AUKUS, and announced plans to equip Australia with nuclear submarines.
In this story, it is above all a question, for Washington, of satisfying its own geopolitical interests. Cooperation between the United States, United Kingdom and Australia in the field of nuclear submarines involves the transfer of large quantities of weapons-grade highly enriched uranium from countries with nuclear weapons to a country that does not don’t have any, which poses a serious risk of nuclear proliferation. The establishment of this so-called “trilateral security partnership” between the three countries to promote cooperation on nuclear submarines and other advanced military technologies is in fact an act of the United States aimed at further coercing their allies and to intervene in Asia-Pacific affairs to maintain their own hegemonic position.
