The U.S., U.K., and Australia announced plans for a new intelligence-sharing security partnership in the Indo-Pacific region


The U.S., U.K., and Australia announced plans for a new intelligence-sharing security partnership in the Indo-Pacific region. 

As part of the pact, the U.S. will give Australia the technology necessary to build nuclear submarines.

 A new defense partnership between the U.S., the U.K. and Australia forms to focus on security.

 The agreement, named AUKUS, was announced yesterday during a virtual meeting between President Biden, the U.K.'s Boris Johnson, and Australia's Scott Morrison.

 The deal calls for further cooperation on cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and quantum tech. All three countries are part of the "Five Eyes" intelligence-sharing scheme that also includes New Zealand and Canada.

 The relationship between Australia and China has deteriorated in recent years, as the former has criticized the latter for spying on (and hacking) its purported allies in the region. 

Chinese diplomats expressed frustration about the AUKUS plan. Government officials denied that the agreement was designed specifically as a counterweight to Chinese influence in the reason. 

One U.S. government official said the pact was part of: "a larger effort to sustain the fabric of engagement and deterrence in the Indo-Pacific."
