Biden to launch NUCLEAR tech working group alongside UK and Australia in apparent bid to push back against China – reports


President Biden is set to announce a three-way tech-sharing pact with the UK and Australia, including nuclear defense, sources close to the White House told Politico. The countries will meet to discuss ‘threats’ including China.

Biden is expected to announce a new defense pact, reportedly called AUUKUS and involving the UK and Australia, according to the news outlet, which cited an unnamed White House official and a congressional staffer. It reportedly will focus on sharing information in areas like artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, long-range strike capabilities, and even nuclear defense infrastructure. 

The US president is scheduled to make an important announcement regarding the strengthening of a defense alliance between the US, UK, and Australia at 7am local time, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. Several high-ranking cabinet ministers were granted rare exemptions from the country’s ultra-harsh lockdown in order to attend the “hastily arranged” meeting in the capital city of Canberra, according to sources familiar with the matter cited by the Australian media.

Biden is expected to deliver “brief remarks about a national security initiative,” while other matters up for discussion include how the alliance might strike back against China’s trade maneuvers and other so-called “grey zone attacks,” increased access to American missile tech for the Australians, the controversial withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the nature of future terrorist threats.

While there are not currently any US nukes positioned in Australia, some have speculated the defense pact will involve the expansion of American missile infrastructure into the continent to address the supposed threat posed by China.

The US and China often accuse each other of raising tensions and provocative behavior in the region by conducting naval drills. The US regularly carries out so-called ‘freedom-of-navigation’ missions, sailing warships close to China’s waters, which Beijing views as provocative military actions. Washington, meanwhile, accuses China of intimidating its neighbors by sending its military ships and jets to patrol the areas near Taiwan, which Beijing considers to be an integral part of the country.

Australia, the United States and Britain will unveil a landmark new security pact to share advanced technologies, including nuclear submarine technology, in a major international announcement on Thursday morning.

As part of the pact, to be known as AUKUS, the US would help Australia develop a nuclear submarine capability, which could result in Australia dumping its $90 billion submarine deal with France, sources confirmed.

The working group will enable the three countries to share information in areas including long-range strike capabilities, artificial intelligence and underwater systems in a thinly veiled bid to counter China, Politico reported, citing a White House official and a congressional staffer.

The announcement will be made at 7am AEST, when the White House said US President Joe Biden would deliver “brief remarks about a national security initiative”.


In Australia, federal cabinet ministers were called to a top-secret meeting in Canberra on Wednesday ahead of the announcement. Some members of cabinet were granted border exemptions to urgently fly to Canberra for the hastily arranged meeting, sources familiar with the development said.

Defence Minister Peter Dutton and Foreign Minister Marise Payne, who are in Washington for a series of meetings over the next two days, were said to have joined Wednesday's meeting via a secure connection.
