Hockey: AUKUS is a “game changer” against China, improving Russia’s capabilities

Former Ambassador to the United States Joe Hockey welcomed the AUKUS alliance as a “game changer” representing the “gateway to the jewel of the crown” of military and intelligence capabilities.

Under the trilateral agreement, Australia will use US and British technology to build nuclear submarines.

Hockey, who named the alliance “ANZUS 2.0,” said the announcement was a statement against capacity building not only in Russia but also in China’s regional powers.

“This is an extraordinary announcement and in many ways a game changer,” he told Sky News Australia.

“It’s not just a treaty, so it takes us to a new level. The important thing is to be real concrete in something that shares capabilities, saves our country, and protects our country in the future. Make an effort.

“This represents a changing world order, not only for China, but also for Russia, which has significantly improved its capabilities in recent years, despite its focus on the Indo-Pacific.

“They are crown jewels (of submarines), and this announcement by US, British, and Morrison Prime Ministers represents the gateway to crown jewels for military and intelligence capabilities.”
