Putin says, AUKUS undoubtedly undermines regional stability
During a recent interview with a US TV channel CNBC on Wednesday, the Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the AUKUS undoubtedly undermines regional stability. AUKUS is a security pact signed between Australia, Britain, and the United States under the pact, Washington and London will support Canberra in building nuclear-powered submarines.
Putin further added, “In my opinion, it is good to be friends with each other, but bad to be friends against someone. This impairs the stability that we all talk about and we all care about.”
He said that he hopes the situation will not develop according to some unpredictable scenario and will not cause any additional tensions in the region.
Russia has repeatedly voiced its concerns over the new bloc.
Russian officials told US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland during her recent visit to Russia that the AUKUS not only hurts the existing security architecture in Asia-Pacific but also carries the risk of undermining the global nonproliferation regime, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said Thursday.
