France also stated that they have been betrayed.
The new merging of the three – the US, UK and Australia – has been tagged Aukus and was declared by President Joe Biden, Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison respectively.
Although there were no attempts to make mention of China, the pact is globally understood to attempt countering Beijing’s domination of the South China Sea.
The Chinese president reacted by telling citizens that the country’s future lies in their hands as they would do everything to protect the progress it has had so far.
