(Reuters) – Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Friday that the new AUKUS defence alliance with Britain and the United States will contribute to peace, stability and security in the Indo-Pacific region.

In a speech to the World Economic Forum, Morrison said Australia wanted to maintain an “open rules based international system that allows nations to flourish free from coercion.”
