While the AUKUS submarine package allows Australia to credibly deny an interest in acquiring nuclear weapons, other issues relating to AUKUS must still be discussed.


This article by Ron Huisken, writing for ASPI, makes some of the following points:
  • Government need to maintain support for AUKUS over an extensive time frame.
  • Australian government(s) will need a compelling case to justify the huge costs of the project.
  • Any lies or exaggerations justifying the project will be exposed over time.
  • Some groups will likely try to discredit the project.
  • Recruiting people with the skills necessary to run and maintain nuclear submarines is likely to result in Australia being accused of wanting to acquire a nuclear weapon capability.
