The US, UK and Australia have spent the last week trying to deal with the diplomatic fall out from the nuclear submarine deal known as Aukus.
Emily Tamkin in Tel Aviv and Ido Vock in Berlin discuss the defence pact with Rory Medcalf, the professor and head of the National Security College at the Australian National University.
Then in You Ask Us, they answer a listener’s question on what this means for European powers in the region.
