The Chinese Foreign Ministry aggressively condemned Australia on Tuesday for announcing an agreement, alongside America and the United Kingdom, to upgrade its submarine fleet with major purchases of American nuclear-powered submarines, beginning in the early 2030s.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin claimed that Australia owning the vessels – which American President Joe Biden insisted on Monday would be nuclear-powered, but not equipped with nuclear weapons – would create a “severe nuclear proliferation risk” and put the world on a “path of error and danger.”

The agreement announced in San Diego, California, on Monday – in the presence of Biden, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese – was born of an alliance the Biden administration branded the AUKUS, named after the three countries, and intended to protect the “free Indo-Pacific.” The Chinese Communist Party considers the alliance a direct threat to its ambitions in the South China Sea, where Beijing illegally claims territory belonging to five different countries, not including China’s own waters.

The AUKUS alliance was created two years ago in response to Australia canceling its deal to buy nuclear submarines from France. In retaliation, France recalled their ambassadors from America and Australia, and claimed the American submarine deal was a “stab in the back.”

Biden said the following regarding the new deal:

“The ultimate goal isn’t just selling subs to Australia, it’s developing something new together. We’re calling it the SSN-AUKUS. This new state-of-the-art conventionally armed nuclear-powered submarine that will work — that will combine U.S. submarine — UK submarine technology and design with American technology… Simply stated, we’re putting ourselves in the strongest possible position to navigate the challenges of today and tomorrow together.”

In total, Australia will buy at least five nuclear-powered American submarines in the next decade before building up their own arsenal with U.S. assistance. The total cost of the project will be around $245 billion. The original cost of the project with the French had an estimated cost of $66 billion.
