China in sights as U.S., Australia and Britain leaders set to meet on subs
Washington – The leaders of the United States, Britain and Australia will meet Monday in San Diego with an expected announcement on nuclear submarines, a landmark step in military cooperation as concerns grow over a fast-rising China.
U.S. President Joe Biden, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will gather in the California naval hub to flesh out the new three-way security pact dubbed AUKUS that the nations unveiled in September 2021.
The key element of AUKUS was a U.S. agreement to export to Australia its prized technology of nuclear-powered submarines, previously shared only with Britain when it designed its undersea fleet in the 1960s.
