Chinese government has engaged in ‘increasingly alarming activities': Dutton
Defence Minister Peter Dutton says Australia finds itself in a region “at the very epicentre” of global strategic competition.
“A region witness to a military build-up of a scale and ambition that historically has rarely been associated with peaceful outcomes,” Mr Dutton said at the National Press Club on Friday.
“A region where tensions continue to rise in a matter exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Mr Dutton also spoke of China, saying the Chinese government has “engaged in increasingly alarming activities”.
