‘Five Eyes’ Defense Ministers Meet Amid Ongoing Rifts With China

The defense ministers from the so-called Five Eyes intelligence partnership discussed deepening their alliance over two days of meetings via video conference that ended Tuesday.

The ministers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the U.K. and the U.S. “reaffirmed their commitment to advance defense and security cooperation on matters of common interest to support and defend a stable, rules-based, global order, that is increasingly being challenged,” they said in a joint statement at the end of the meeting.
