5 eyes alliance, old UKUS treaty was mostly centred around USSR. This AUKUS treaty maybe for maritime security against China. Canada isn't going to be part of anti China treaty in Pacific, nor do they have resources or reasons. UK,US,AUS have reasons and resources for such treaty. Why NZ isn't part of this is surprising me.The Five eyes maybe creating a separate Anglo Saxon alliance.. But, all of the countries in 5 eyes are treaty allies of the US.. so I don't know how AUKUS helps..
The full details of this arrangement is definitely going to be classified. The N-Sub deal is only what they are showing on surface. There must be much deeper understanding between three.
