The United States, Australia and the United Kingdom have formed a new alliance “AUKUS” to jointly address new challenges in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The official goal of the bloc is extremely unclear, but experts are convinced that the goal of the alliance is to oppose China, mainly in the South China Sea.
Former Israeli intelligence officer Jakov Kedmi says that Russia took into account the appearance of “AUKUS”, but limited itself, since China is a kind of barrier between the zone of influence of the alliance and the territory of the Russian Federation. In order to directly threaten Russia, the bloc must defeat the People’s Republic of China, but the expert seriously doubts the feasibility of such a scenario.
– Russia can say: first you will overtake my “younger brother” – China, and then we will take care of you. It is clear that the Russian Federation takes this into account, but that is all. So far, the main blow has been directed against China. Let them break their teeth in China – said Kedmi.
The expert notes the impotence of the AUKUS participants towards Beijing. The United States will not enter into an open confrontation with China, because it is afraid of major military conflicts. The United Kingdom is too far away, and its fleet in the Indo-Pacific is limited. Australia, on the other hand, is too dependent on China, and China’s trade and economic response could seriously disrupt the activities of the new bloc.
– They won’t even start anything against China, because they can’t do anything. Neither Australia nor the United Kingdom. The United States fears war with China. Australia has a well-known problem: China is its largest trading partner. “We will see how China will react to this in its trade relations with Australia,” Kedmi told Eaton TV.
