Australian Prime Minister promised to provide US military assistance

50
Australia can be safely called the state of militant prime ministers. Former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott at one time promised to “apply the technique” against Vladimir Putin, and the current Prime Minister (Malcolm Turnbull) states that the Australian army “will certainly support the United States in the event of a military operation against the DPRK regime”.

Turnbull on one of the Australian radio stations:
Our country is an ally of the United States. We are also a party to the Pacific Security Pact Treaty - a military alliance of Australia, New Zealand and the United States. The States have no closer ally than we with our army.


Australian Prime Minister promised to provide US military assistance


According to Turnbull, the Australian armed forces will be ready to assist the American allies if the territory of the United States is attacked by the DPRK. "We will come to their aid just as they would have come to help us in the event of a threat," the chairman of the Australian Cabinet of Ministers added.

The Australian Prime Minister said that consultations are now being held "with all allies."

Recall that earlier in the DPRK media there were statements of readiness to launch a nuclear strike on the island of Guam (the territory actually occupied by the USA), where the US military bases and the CIA prison are located. According to the Korean authorities, this will happen in the event of aggression against the people of the DPRK.

        Not the master, but the Mistress. The head of Australia is the Queen of Great Britain. And the prime minister is "Nobody" and calling him "No way."

            Australia is ruled by the MONARCH of Great Britain.
            By the way, British Prime Minister Theresa May has already spoken out that Britain is morally ready to use nuclear weapons, for example, against “aggressive” Russia.

          this is just a formality at the present stage. in fact, national governments are completely independent. the queen is like a kind of unifying symbol

            Heh heh heh ... Australia is a prime example real the power of the Queen of Great Britain.
            In 1975, a parliamentary crisis occurred in the country: the House of Representatives (in which the majority belonged to the Labor Party) and the Senate (in which the majority belonged to their liberal opponents) clung to the clinch, mutually blocking the passage of any documents through parliament. The Prime Labor Party asked the Governor-General to re-elect the Senate and received preliminary consent. It remains only to sign the documents.
            And when the prime minister came to the governor-general with an official letter on the re-election of the Senate - he was handed ... a document on his own resignation - in full accordance with the articles of the Australian Constitution regulating the rights of the Crown. The new Libyan Prime Minister became the national liberal.
            Moreover, when the head of the House of Representatives, indignant at such a decision, decided to meet with the Governor General - he was refused this with the wording "the governor general does not see the need for such a meeting".
            Finally, the Laborites were finished off when the Governor General announced a general re-election of parliament, at which the Laborites flew by with a whistle.

              Don't you think 42 years have passed? yes Australia recognizes itself as a dominion, but this does not mean that the Australian authorities are not free to make decisions

                Australian authorities? Which of the branches of government are you talking about? If about the executive, then you should know who is its head. smile
                Australian authorities are now as independent as they were in 1975. They are independent under the Constitution - whose provisions regarding Crown authority remain the same as before (including the submission of all laws passed through Parliament to the Governor General for Crown approval and the Crown's right to annul any the law within a year from the date of its filing).
                And if no one has yet used the articles of the Constitution on the power of the Crown, this does not mean that they do not work. The shotgun is still hanging on stage awaiting a shot. smile

          A formal chapter represented by the Governor General. The candidacy is selected by the Prime Minister. And the queen only formally approve it. And the prime minister himself really depends on the will of the parliamentary majority, and not on the queen. A significant portion of Australians and, accordingly, political forces, favor the transformation of the country into a republic. Out of respect for the personality of the current queen, they propose to do this after her death.))

              Neither Canadians nor Australians are part of the United Kingdom. They have their own kingdoms as part of the Commonwealth. And there are, especially in Australia, supporters of the republic. In Australia, a significant portion of parliamentarians have been Republican-minded over the past couple of decades.

                Canada and Australia consider themselves dominions, and England is the metropolis. the queen is the queen of both Canadians and Australians.

                  The concept of dominion has not been used for a long time. There are no dominions now. And the dominions themselves were essentially independent states. The last dominion is Sri Lanka. Great Britain is not a power for Australia and Canada. On many issues of foreign and defense policy, the same Australians are more tied to the United States.
                  You are writing everything correctly about the relationship between Great Britain and Australia and Canada, with the exception of the question about the name "dominion".))

                    Well, de facto no dominions. I agree with that. and so these are absolutely independent countries. but despite this, it is the countries that supported England in both world wars. although I don't remember already. but even in the First World War, they did not seem to have to do it. governments themselves decided to join them in the war on the side of England or not

        "To send special forces from a kangaroo to the rescue?"
        In this case, the banter is inappropriate, however, as always. Australia has a fairly powerful military. I don’t think that the Americans will need them, but the fact is a fact, and all potential opponents will definitely consider them

      We also decided to “ride the spiral of history”. Yes A number of articles about the participation of Australians and New Zealots in world wars were recently published on VO. And, by the way, now the Novozels will also have to declare something like that. They have a tandem there with the Australians. Even the Confederations Cup was leaked together, from ... different regions. laughing
