In my opinion, AQ is a type of cards you can call a raise. But 3-betting is very often ended with all-in, which isn't our aim. You need to build your pot, not push pre-flop too much, because you're on a dangerous spot with those tricky cards. Of course if you decided to play loose, these are great to 3-bet.
But remember, if you meet AK or any pocket pair, especially AA or QQ you'll be way behind
Early phase - call
Late phase - 3 bet
That's all I can say. I don't like AQ.
