Barry O’Farrell, the Australian envoy to India, said Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the country's foreign and defence ministers informed their Indian counterparts about the AUKUS agreement. "This decision was taken after an assessment of the capability required to meet a more challenging strategic environment. Nuclear powered submarines will provide Australia with the right capability," O'Farrell said.
