WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden, United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced AUKUS, a new Indo-Pacific security alliance.
During a news conference on Wednesday at the White House, Biden said the U.S. will share intelligence and technology to deal with “rapidly evolving threats” and to “build a future of peace.”
The U.S. already shared the tech on nuclear submarines with the United Kingdom in the late 1950s. With artificial intelligence and other new technologies, submarines have evolved.
Biden and Boris agreed to share new tech with Australia to create a modern submarine fleet that could spend more time at sea and be better at avoiding detection.
