What does past one-year record of 'AUKUS' suggest?

One year has passed since the creation of the US-led “AUKUS”.

On September 15, 2021, the US, the UK, and Australia established “AUKUS”, a security partnership, under an excuse of sharing information and technology for strengthening the cyber capabilities, artificial intelligence, quantum technologies and undersea capabilities. The kernel of this partnership is that the US and the UK transfer to Australia the technology for building nuclear-powered submarines which use the weapons-grade uranium enriched by over 90%.

During the past one year, the US ran amuck to complete “AUKUS” into a new tool for realizing its strategy of world supremacy, ignoring the proper concern from international society.

In November 2021, it concluded an agreement with the UK and Australia on the exchange of information about the nuclear power of nuclear submarines and in August 2022, they decided to provide Australia with education for training experts on building and operating nuclear-powered submarines.

Earlier, in February this year, the US Secretary of State visited Australia and said at the interview with the media that the US is willing to help Australia possess nuclear-powered submarines as soon as possible and that the quickest way for Australia to set up a nuclear submarine unit is to hire the US second-hand nuclear-powered submarines, thus revealing the intention to arm Australia with nuclear-powered submarines at the earliest date possible.

What cannot be overlooked is that the US which, from the first days of creating “AUKUS”, expressed its intention to provide Australia with not only the technology for building nuclear-powered submarines but also “Tomahawk” cruise missile that can mount nuclear warhead issued a joint statement in April 2022 that it is to extend the range of cooperation even to the joint development of ultra-sonic weapons.

The past one-year record of “AUKUS” shows that their much-touted transfer of information and technology for strengthening the cyber capabilities, artificial intelligence, quantum technologies and undersea capabilities is a mere show.

The real intention of the US is to use “AUKUS” to contain the big powers in the region militarily and strategically by equipping Australia with nuclear attack means.

“AUKUS”, from the very beginning of its creation, has been the target of condemnation and criticism from many countries as it posed a serious danger to nuclear non-proliferation and the peace and stability of the Asia-Pacific region and the rest of the entire globe.

At several meetings of the United Nations Security Council this year, China and Russia disclosed that the US, the UK and Australia openly violated the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) through “AUKUS”. And in June, at the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, they condemned the nuclear states for setting the first precedents of openly transferring nuclear technology to a non-nuclear state.

At the 10th Review Conference of the Parties to the NPT held at the United Nations headquarters from August 1 to 26, China revealed that the attempt of the US to transfer highly enriched uranium to a non-nuclear state under the pretext of cooperation of the nuclear-powered submarine technology constitutes an undisguised breach of the nuclear non-proliferation system as well as the evident practice of double standard.

The media with fair opinion is also raising voice to condemn the misbehavior of the US as an “extremely irresponsible act of abandoning the regulations and obligations of nuclear non-proliferation” and as a “manifestation of double standard heavily inclined to Cold War mentality”.

Nevertheless, the US is unreasonably insisting that it does not go against the NPT because it provides Australia with the technology for building nuclear-powered submarines, not with the nuclear weapon itself.

The one-year record of “AUKUS” graphically demonstrates that the US is the main culprit in the nuclear proliferation, which does not hesitate to do anything in pursuit of its wild ambition for world hegemony.
