The embassy gave the assurance that AUKUS would work with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and make sure that its operations were in line with global efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.
It stated in a text message, “We welcome the views of the Philippine government, particularly the statement from the DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs).
The AUKUS partners will continue to cooperate freely and transparently with the IAEA. Australia will always seek to shape our area together with our allies in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.
Both Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong and Defense Minister Richard Marles had spoken to their Philippine counterparts via phone before the submarine agreement announcement, the embassy said.
“Australia communicates with Philippine officials on a variety of regional security matters on a regular basis. Australian officials traveled from Canberra to Manila to update their Philippine counterparts on the recent AUKUS announcement, and the Ministers for Foreign Affairs and Defense and the Chief of the Australian Defense Force also telephoned their counterparts “It read.
The DFA, on behalf of the Filipino government, took note of the three nations’ nuclear submarine initiative on Thursday.
It stated that agreements like AUKUS must strengthen the international system of rules that supports regional security and growth.
