Beijing blasts “irresponsible” AUKUS alliance



Just a day after the AUKUS alliance was announced, China has described the move as “extremely irresponsible” and “narrow-minded”

Under the deal, the US and the UK will team up with Australia to provide the nation with the technology and information required to build nuclear-powered submarines.

More importantly, it is also being viewed by many as a large-scale attempt to counter China’s growing influence and dominance throughout the world, and particularly in the South China Sea.

This has angered Beijing, with China’s foreign ministry spokesperson saying the alliance risks “severely damaging regional peace… and intensifying the arms race”.

The spokesperson described the pact as “the obsolete cold war mentality”, warning the three nations are “hurting their own interests”.

China conducts ‘punishment’ war games near Taiwan

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.
