On the 15th, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia announced an agreement to arm Oceania with nuclear submarines. Its purpose is to counter the increase of Chinese troops in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, especially in the South China Sea, which is a key part of Beijing, through which a third of world trade passes.
