that the u. k has acquired over generations dating back to the launch of the roll navy's 1st nuclear submarine over 60 years ago. and together with the other opportunities from orcus, creating hundreds of highly skilled jobs across the united kingdom, including in scotland, the north of england. and the midlands taking forward, this governments driving purpose of leveling up across the whole country. we will have a new opportunity to reinforce britton's place the leading edge of science and technology, strengthening our national expertise. and perhaps most significantly the u. k. australia and the us will be joined even more closely together. reflecting the measure of trust between us, the depths of our friendship and the enduring strength of our shared values of

freedom and democracy. only a handful of countries possess nuclear powered submarines and it is a momentous decision for any nation to acquire this formidable capability and perhaps equally momentous for any other state to come to its aid. but astray. lawyer is one of our oldest friends, a kindred nation. and a fellow democracy and a natural partner in this enterprise. now the u. k. will embark on this project alongside our allies, making the world safer and generating jobs across united kingdom. thank you. over to you, mr. president. thank you board and i want to thank that fell down under. thank you very much. appreciate this privacy.

12:09 am
have long been faithful and capable partners or even closer today. today, we're taking another historic step to deepen and formalize cooperation among all 3 of our nations. because we all recognize the imperative i'm insuring pieces stability and endo pacific. over the long term, we need to be able to address both the current strategic environment in the region and how it may evolve. because the future, the reach of our nations in indeed the world depends on a free and opening up a civic, enduring and flourishing in the decades ahead head. this, this about investing in our greatest sources, turn our alliances and updating them, and to better meet the threats of today and tomorrow. it's about connecting americans existing allies and partners in new ways and amplifying our ability to collaborate. recognizing there is no regional device,
12:10 am
separate in the interest of our atlantic and for civic partners. indeed, this effort reflects the broader trend of key european countries plain and greenly important role in the pacific. france in particular, already has substantial indo pacific presence as a key partner and ally and strengthening the security and prosperity of the region . the united states look forward working closely with france and other key countries as we go forward. and finally, this initiative is about making sure that each of us has a modern capability. most modern capabilities, we need to maneuver and defend against rapidly evolving threats. arcus will bring together our sailors, our scientists, and our industries maintain and expand our edge and military capabilities. and critical technology such as cyber artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, and undersea domains. now, as a key project, under our case,
12:11 am
we are launching consultations with australia acquisition of conventionally arm nuclear powered submarines for its navy. conventionally armed. i want to be exceedingly clear about this. we're not talking about nuclear armed submarines. these aren't conventionally arm submarines that are powered by nuclear reactors. this technology is proven it say in the united states and u. k. have been operating nuclear power submarines for decades. i have asked secretary austin to the department of defense to lead this efforts for the u. s. government. in close collaboration with the department of energy and the department of state are governments will now launch an 18 month consultation period to determine every element of this program from workforce to trainee requirements, to production timelines, to safeguards, nonproliferation measures, and to nuclear stewardship and safety to ensure for compliance with the,
12:12 am
for each of our nations commitments on the nuclear nonproliferation treaty will all undertake this effort in a way that reflects the longstanding leadership in global mom, collaboration and rigorous verification standards in partnership and consultation with the international atomic energy agency. so i want to thank the prime minister prime minister marson, and prime minister johnson for their friendship, but mostly important for their leadership and partnership as you undertake this new phase of our security cooperation. and the united states will also continue to work with asi on and the quad. as was stated earlier, our 5 treaty allies and other close partners in the pacific, as well as allies and partners in europe and around the world to maintain a free and open it up pacific. and build a future, a piece, opportunity for all the people of the region were joining together or partnerships
12:13 am
are getting stronger. this is what we're about. i want to thank you all and i look forward to seeing both of you in person very soon. i hope. thank you. thank you. the we're listening there's in us president joe biden, during that video meeting with the screaming prime minister scott morrison. and the british prime minister bar is johnson announcing the creation of this partnership called orchestra between the u. s. u. k and australia. now some of the top lines, they said that this partnership will promote deeper information and technology sharing deeper integration of security and defense related science. and also crucially that the 3 leaders were going to support a screen in acquiring nuclear powered submarines but not nuclear arms. so conventionally armed the submarine,
12:14 am
so that video meeting between the 3 leaders just finishing. now let's go to al jazeera mike, hannah, who joins us live now from washington, d. c. and the was also listening to that. now, these 3 countries of obviously, historically had cordial relation to so why the need for this partnership now? well, it's interesting that there was one word not mentioned by any of the 3 leaders. and that single word is china. there is no doubt that this new alliance is in response to what the us and its allies, but the as a mountain chinese threat in the, in the region. and what you have is now a formalization off alliance between these 3 countries, which is directly aimed at countering that chinese threat. it is very significant, significant, in terms of forging this alliance, the sharing of highly sensitive nuclear technology. for example, in the past, the u. s. some u. k, share nuclear technology in terms of propulsion systems,
12:15 am
for example. now australia is being brought into the fold. a very significant step forward in terms of the relations between the countries. but one must point out as well is that this is another level in terms of alliances that are being forged or have been forged in the past. the quad, for example, the us, japan, india, and the u. k. they were formed a long period of time ago. then you had the 5 eyes and intelligence gathering operation between 5 allies, including australia and the u. s. so this is building up on blocks in terms of alliances between traditional allies. but underlying it all is that threat that is perceived to be coming from china, and this is perceived as a way to come to that. and how do we, or, i mean, obviously it's just happened now, but that is perceived to be coming from china. and this is perceived as a way to come to that. and how do we, or, i mean, obviously it's just happened now,
12:16 am
but how do we expect the china itself to, you know, to react to this creation of a partnership? well, that's an important question, but it is something that will play out the threat has not been made real or a parent. as i said, there was a careful move not to mention the word to china during this announcement. so certainly there's no intention to provoke china in any way. it is a warning shot across china's bows, in terms of the fact that the alliance is going to stick together, it will actively attempt to restrict china's influence in the in the pacific. already for example, you have a u. k crop carry and the region operating in conjunction with a couple of us nuclear power submarines that is understood. so this is already underway in terms of policing,
12:17 am
the waters part of which china lays claim to which is highly sensitive, strategically for the western allies. but i'm, i just mentioned quickly as well. there's some other issues here. it appears that australia has not turned its back on bronze. it had a submarine deal with problems in terms of which france is going to provide some 80 conventional apollo submarines been problems for that project all along. now it appears that australia is turning its back on that moving into this alliance with the u. k. in the u. s. in terms of delivering a nuclear propulsion submarine. so that's not going to do much for relations with the french. then of course, there is another issue which underlies all this, and that is iran. iran is likely to argue very strongly publicly. now that while australia is able to build a nuclear driven submarine, it to can use it's neck to nuclear technology to do that because these allies have made clear that this is no counter to the nuclear proliferation treaty. president
12:18 am
biden stated that explicitly. so there's all sorts of issues that will come out of this that may go far beyond what is essentially a defense packed to on an advanced technological basis between the 3 countries. very interesting to see how it all plays out like hannah, with the latest on that from washington. d. c. mike, as always, thank you. and the tensions are definitely rising in the korean peninsula. north korean media says the country as test fired. another missile barely a day after it launched ballistic myself prompting condemnation from south korea and the u. s. the latest launch was reportedly fired from a railway with state media, calling it an efficient counter strike weapon against threatening forces. south korea also tested its own ballistic miss silo earlier in the day as it wraps up its defense capabilities. but mcbride reports from sol. this highly provocative missile test was carried out while china's foreign minister,
12:19 am
one year was insole for tools with his south korean counter path with north korea high on their agenda. but of course, we all want to contribute to the peace and stability of the korean peninsula. for example, not only in north korea, but also the countries are conduct the military actions. so we should have all parties make joint efforts to region dialogues. this was wangs last stop of a foreign nation tour of east asia. as china looked to counter the increasing influence of the us in the region and north korea risks angering beijing with this latest launch, south career is hoping china will use its considerable influence over north korea to bring it back to the negotiation table with each missile lodge but seems less likely and shows even china's control over its neighbor is limited. north korea has also claim to have tested a new type of long range cruise missile over the weekend. and it comes after a military parade through the streets of young gang last week,
12:20 am
facing an economic crisis from international sanctions. and from the pandemic, combined with food shortages for damaging storms. it seems the show of military muscle is intended as much of a morale boost at home as showing the world, it is still a force to be reckoned to it. and it comes as south korea developed its own military hardware. on wednesday it successfully testified, a ballistic missile from a submarine becoming only the 7th country and the world to master the technology. it also announced advances in high powered ballistic and supersonic cruise missiles, as both careers continue to develop their arsenals. robert bride al jazeera sol, its been one months since the taliban seized cobble and the crisis and gown his son is only got worse. more than 3000000 people are internally displaced as drought and famine. dr. thousands out of the countryside and into cities. unicef says
12:21 am
a 1000000 children could starve to death if their immediate needs are not met. food is running out and 14000000 people could be pushed to the brink of starvation in just 2 weeks. around $10000000000.00 and acids remain frozen outside of the country . banks are running out of cash and they warned that they may have to close their doors unless the government releases more dollars or some. bon jovi reports from capital if you're looking for bargains, gobbles german market is the place to be from fridges to carpets. all household items are bought and sold here, but this market wasn't here a month ago. this trade began after tens of thousands of people left the african capital. when the taliban took over these days, many others are selling what they can to make ends meet. as jobs have dwindled, the population of cobbled has increased tens of thousands of people move from their homes at the thought about the territories across. have gone to sun. many a sheltering and make sure the camps in the city will send

a slightly how much the government of afghanistan is doing everything you can to provide job opportunities to africa. and we call an africans to stay and not to migrate and to help develop the country. although our guns have not seen this level of peace and security in cobble for decades, people are still concerned about the future. i don't have hope like before, the security is now better, but the state of education will likely be affected in the future. but there is a generational divide in the opinions of women. and so the mother says she's happy, there is no more bloodshed and insecurity since the taliban, segregated people by gender, she believes the model problems of you have been dissolved. so the and her mum came to the bank to get some cash that some short supply for hundreds of these people who are coming to the bank every day. the biggest problem is the cash french every half hour. only a few of them are allowed inside and then they go in the draw just about $200.00
12:23 am
every week. most of the people here are government employees are $77.00 who have not been paid for a month because of the cash shortage prices of everyday items are rising and with people's dictates purchasing power, businesses are suffering. well, how much is a business student who has learned to fix mobile software to make and meet the q at the bank extends to his shop or not? he's losing customers. he needs to pay his monthly rent of $700.00. like many i've done, he's concerned about the future, but willing to give the taliban a few years to see if the group is sincere in its promises to make people's lives better. maybe if the taliban government are going well and they bring some facilities for our pupils, different the i will stay here with the country. they're frozen the gun central banks assets until the taliban delivers on. it's human rights pledges in the queue . the banks will continue until the unblocked those billions of dollars some a bon jovi, the other. there are couple. meanwhile, f canister, guns,
