Moscow: Nuland Informed AUKUS Threatens to Undermine Security Architecture in Asia-Pacific

US Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland was informed that the AUKUS alliance treaty threatens to undermine security architecture in Asia-Pacific, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said on Thursday.

"In a conversation with Victoria Nuland, it was emphasized that this kind of AUKUS partnership, which is being formed, if not cobbled together by the United States, Britain and Australia, not only threatens to undermine the existing security architecture in the Asia-Pacific region but, in principle, potentially carries risks for the international non-proliferation regime," Zakharova told a press conference.

Negotiations between Russian officials and US Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland were useful, timely and frank, Maria Zakharova said.

"On the whole, we assess the talks held at the Russian Foreign Ministry, the negotiations with Victoria Nuland, as useful, as timely. The conversation turned out to be extremely frank, without avoiding details of numerous problems and irritants in bilateral relations, including obstacles artificially created by Washington for the activities of Russian diplomatic missions and constantly imposed visa and other restrictions to which we are forced to respond," Zakharova told a briefing.
