Moscow, oct. 22 2021 the trilateral security partnership between the united states, britain and australia poses a risk to regional security, russian foreign ministry ambassador-at-large dmitry mashkov said in an interview with ria novosti on tuesday.
he said russia is closely watching the possible consequences of the trilateral security partnership between the united states, britain and australia. the russian side notes that the deployment of nuclear submarines in australia, a non-nuclear-weapon state, under the framework of the trilateral security partnership may pose a potential risk to international and regional security and stability.
he said the creation of such strategic alliances would inevitably lead regional countries to respond to potential threats. the russian side will carefully study this issue and take appropriate measures to safeguard its own interests and national security.
