AHEAD of the Quad conclave on September 25  in United States, Australia, the US and the United Kingdom have announced the formation of a new grouping called AUKUS to ensure a safer and more secure  Indo-Pacific region.  Both AUKUS and Quad have almost the same agenda to keep free the Indo -Pacific being claimed by PRC  as its exclusive zone threatening peace and humanity in that part of the globe. The new security partnership is committed to strengthening stability in the Indo-Pacific region as China expands its military might and influence. The U.S. and U.K. will also assist Canberra in acquiring nuclear-powered submarines to allow Australia’s navy to help counter Chinese nuclear-powered vessels in the region. “Today we’re taking another historic step to deepen and formalize cooperation among all three of our nations because we all recognize the imperative of ensuring peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific over the long term,” Biden said from the East Room of the White House. “This is about investing in our greatest source of strength, our alliances,” Biden said. AUKUS will be “another historic step” in deepening cooperation among the nations. “I am honoured today to be joined by two of America’s closest allies, Australia and the United Kingdom, to launch a new phase of the trilateral security cooperation among our countries,” President Biden said, reported  CNBC. “As Prime Minister Morrison and Prime Minister Johnson said, I thank you for this partnership, your vision, as we embark together on this strategic mission. “Our nations will update and enhance our shared ability to take on the threats of the 21st century, just as we did in the 20th century. “The United States, Australia and the United Kingdom have long been faithful and capable partners and are even closer today. “Today we’re taking another historic step, to deepen and formalise cooperation among all three of our nations. “Because we all recognise the imperative of ensuring peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific over the long-term.
