"Australia is arming up.“While we may be separated geographically, our interests and values are shared,” he said.That doesn't come cheap.This will at least double our defence spend," Uhlmann said.“This partnership will become increasingly vital for defending our interests in the Indo-Pacific region and, by extension, protecting our people back at home."
