EMERGENCE OF AUKUS PACT AS A REGIONAL BLOC AND ITS IMPLICATIONS IN ASIA CONTINENT

Anthony Wende

Abstract


The study examined the emergence of the AUKUS Pact as a regional bloc and its implications in the Asia Continent and also how the entire world received the news of the establishment of the Pact. The research design used for the paper was the diary research method involving creditable media reports and internet analysis reports. The result showed that there are persistent threats of dominance within the Indo-Pacific region that led to the emergence of the AUKUS Pact. Based on the findings, it was recommended that the period of the establishment of the AUKUS Pact was not right due to the tense tension in the region. However, the establishment of the AUKUS Pact intensified the existing tension rather than reducing it. The Pact was not adequately welcome by other nations mostly China, France, Indonesia, and Malaysia that voiced their concerns against the Pact. Hence, this will undermine the existing alliance such as ASEAN in which the rivalries nations are members. Therefore, the power game politics and the growing rivalries among the big world powers and the middle powers is over dominance in the Indo-Pacific region is all about the balance of power.
