Presently, the international society is expressing growing concern over the fact that “AUKUS”, which was established in September 2021 as a trilateral security partnership of the US, the UK and Australia, may pose a serious threat to peace and stability of the world.
That is because the substance of establishing the above-said partnership is the transfer of the technology for building nuclear-powered submarine to Australia by the US which is the biggest warlike, aggressive state in the world.
It is only for 16 years that the US, which was born on the graves of American Indians, was not at war in its history of over 240 years.
From the end of the Second World War to 2001, wars and armed conflicts, big or small, occurred 248 times in total in 153 regions of the world and as many as 201 of them were provoked by the US.
Let’s look at the war in Afghanistan provoked by the US as an example. During its 20 years of occupation, the US troops killed more than 7 790 innocent children and over 47 000 peaceful inhabitants on the pretext of military operation. What was left over after the US retreat from Afghanistan was only the devastated country and the dire famine and poverty.
The US is now mobilizing its huge forces while keeping more than 800 military bases in over 70 countries to destroy global peace and stability and to hinder the independent development of several countries.
Such a country made yet another aggressive tool called “AUKUS” as part of its attempt to realize its ambition of world hegemony. With the help of this, it is now able to flex its muscles to threaten and blackmail the countries that are not submissive to it and are seen as “stumbling blocks” and to cause instability across the world. No wonder the international society is voicing serious concern and mounting resistance to it.
The Chinese Foreign Minister sounded a note of warning that the establishment of “AUKUS” by the US, the UK and Australia and their plan for cooperation in the technology for building nuclear-powered submarine have given rise to a danger of nuclear proliferation and new arms race in Asia together with multiple dangers such as the undermining of the building of a Southeast Asian nuclear-free zone and return to the cold war mentality and have already triggered sharp vigilance among the international society and Asian countries in particular. He also emphasized that Asian countries should see through the true colours of the US Indo-Pacific strategy and jointly oppose any attempt to go against the common aspiration of the regional countries and to destroy the regional peace and stability.
The Russian Foreign Minister asserted the US and the West make attempts to deliberately aggravate the situation and to destroy the existing interstate cooperation system, warning that the formation of a military bloc based on the logic of the cold war and deterrence policy will only exacerbate tension in the Asia-Pacific region.
Even the French Ambassador to Indonesia said that “the new security partnership will pose a serious threat to peace and security, far from ensuring peace in the Southeast Asian region.”
As an eagle does not hatch a dove, so “AUKUS” created by the US, which regards aggression as its intrinsic mode of existence, can only be used as a war tool threatening global peace and stability.
The international society aspiring after independence, peace and justice should clearly distinguish the true colours of “AUKUS” and keep a strict watch on the US and its vassal forces which are bringing dark clouds of nuclear war over the world by taking advantage of “AUKUS”.
