SAN DIEGO/WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) – The USA, Great Britain and Australia have agreed on a concrete timetable to equip Australia with nuclear-powered submarines. The declared goal of their alliance is to strengthen security and military deterrence in the Indo-Pacific – where China is also trying to expand its power. Shortly before a meeting of the heads of government of all three countries on Monday in San Diego, senior US officials presented the details of the new schedule.
According to this, the USA and Great Britain want to station submarines in Australia on a rotating basis from 2027. In the 2030s, Australia is then expected to build its own fleet of nuclear submarines. It is about a nuclear propulsion system, not about nuclear armament. First, the country will buy submarines from the United States, it said. In the long term, the three countries plan to jointly develop a submarine model that will eventually be built in Australia itself.
