ANU expert says that Australia’s coastline is an ideal setting for nuclear weapons

• The country’s ‘continuous coastline’ could house short-range nuclear missiles

• The weapons could be used in defence against air and maritime forces

• But a ‘serious study’ would be crucial before a nuclear agenda is established

• A potential nuclear agenda could also cause rifts with Indonesia and the US 

• Australia has taken shelter under the US nuclear umbrella since early 2000s

Australia is ‘uniquely positioned’ for the implementation of nuclear weapons, an expert has said.

Dr Stephan Fruhling, Associate Dean of the College of Asia and the Pacific at the Australian National University, said in a recent essay that the ‘unthinkable option’ of Australian nuclear weapons is more likely than ever before.

The country’s continuous coastline, he said, would be the ideal position for tactical, short-range nuclear weapons that could be used in defence against air and maritime forces.

Dr Stephan Fruhling, from the ANU, said in a recent essay that the ‘unthinkable option’ of Australian nuclear weapons is more likely than ever before

‘Australia could establish a maritime exclusion zone in wartime, to increase the military risk for any country planning a major attack against the continent,’ he told Late Night Live.

Australia has taken shelter under the US nuclear umbrella since the early 20th century, and has stubbornly stayed out of discussions to forbid the manufacture of nuclear weapons, the ABC reports.
