Australian MFA: Russia and China pose no threat to the country

35
Russia and China do not threaten the national security of Australia, reports TASS statement by the country's foreign minister Julie Bishop.




Earlier, the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, presented an updated National Defense Strategy, according to which, Russia and China "undermine the existing international order" and threaten the United States.

We clearly have a different look at Russia and China. We do not believe that Russia or China pose a military threat to Australia,
Bishop emphasized.

We will continue to work closely with China,
she said.

We are conducting joint military exercises with China and other countries in the region, and we will continue to do so,
added the minister.

In turn, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, talking to reporters on the same day, said that at present “no country in the region, with the exception of North Korea, shows any hostile intentions towards Australia.”

            hi
            Russia (USSR) ceased to eat kenguryatina (canned food) in 1944 (deliveries were stopped due to competition of supplies of buffalo from the USA). Meat like meat is only very red. Eating is delicious. yes

                Well, fire me. If this continent is interesting to China, then let it spud it alone or in tandem with India (billions of the population must be shoved somewhere, but the USA, France and the Benelux have laid eyes on Africa). stop

                  Okay Leo I agree with you Australia we do not need and let the kangaroos jump there laughing But China is quite intensively and is hobbling Africa, investing in Djibouti, Nigeria and other countries of Africa, and is crowding all sorts of Benelux with the French. hi

              Nope, dear, back in 1982, as a student, I saw kanguryatin layers in a cardboard shell in our dormitory store. The corresponding inscriptions were in place. I remember, then, that the saleswoman put the ax with the blade up and threw a box at him with such an epic movement. By the way, from one throw I broke it ...

    Some Australians are dull, sit quietly on the outskirts of the Earth and live for your own pleasure - no, they’re getting into big politics, and even in one team with the USA. The guys will rip you off as sticky and make you carry chestnuts for Americans. Remember me, it will be too late, if it is not too late.

    We do not pose a threat only to Australia, is it that the Americans did not have time to visit or took the wrong note?

    Economic and direct (military) threats are two different things. In Australia, apparently, they understand this.
