Young Kim issues statement on AUKUS support of Australia acquiring nuclear-powered submarines

Indo-Pacific Subcommittee Chair Young Kim (CA-40) released the following statement on the Australia, United Kingdom and United States (AUKUS) announcement to support Australia acquiring conventionally-armed, nuclear-powered submarines.

“Strengthening defense and technological ties with our allies is critical for ensuring a free and open Indo-Pacific, especially as we face growing and shared threats from the Chinese Communist Party,” said Kim. “As Chairwoman of the Indo-Pacific Subcommittee, I believe this AUKUS announcement is a significant step in the right direction of strengthening our trilateral partnership and combatting threats. I hope we can expand our capabilities and quickly deliver on our word to make this a reality.”
