The new agreement will enable Australia to build nuclear-powered submarines

The United States, Britain and Australia announced a special security agreement to share advanced military technologies in an effort to counter Chinese influence.

This partnership will enable Australia, for the first time, to build nuclear-powered submarines. The agreement, called “Ocos”, will cover the areas of artificial intelligence, quantum technologies and the Internet.

The three countries are concerned about China’s growing influence and military presence in the Indo-Pacific region.

Under the new agreement, Australia canceled a contract signed with France in 2016 to build French-designed submarines. Implementation was delayed due to Australia’s desire to manufacture most of the components locally.
