US President Joe Biden plans to hold bilateral talks with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese on March 13, 2023.
AUKUS heads of State are scheduled to meet next week to discuss the Australian bid to purchase nuclear-powered submarines.
Australia is set to choose whether to purchase British-made Astute-class nuclear-powered submarines or American-designed Virginia-class submarines.
According to the White House, all three leaders are scheduled to meet in San Diego, California, on Monday to discuss the deal and regional security matters.
US President Joe Biden will hold bilateral talks with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
The bid has been ongoing for over 18 months and is specifically intended to address China’s growing influence across the Pacific.
PM Albanese said that this would mark “the single biggest leap” in Australia’s defense capability.
