    If the US Marines arrive by sea, at least they won't have the humiliation of having to berth at a Chinese leased port. HMAS Coonawarra is nearby.

    Scott Morrison says G7 leaders back Australia's stand over China

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the leaders of G7 nations have a "strong level of support" for the stand Australia has taken against China as the three-day summit wrapped up in Cornwall.
    Key points:

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Australia had to be patient to repair its troubled relationship with China, after speaking to G7 leaders about tensions in the Indo-Pacific region
    The G7 has agreed to strict measures on coal-fired power plants and promised to move away from coal generated power
    Mr Morrison is now in London for talks with UK officials and to discuss the Australia/UK free trade agreement

    Speaking shortly before departing for talks with UK officials in London, Mr Morrison said there was increased awareness from European nations about tensions in the Indo-Pacific region and Australia had to be patient to restore its troubled relationship with China.

    "What I detected was a significant and increasing awareness of the impact of tensions in the Indo-Pacific for the broader global system, and that in particular relates to Europe," Mr Morrison said.

    "There was a very high level of awareness and a very strong level of support for what has been a very consistent and clear stand that Australia has taken, consistent with our liberal democratic values which are shared by all of those who joined in on the discussions these last few days."

    Throughout the three-day event, their first face-to-face meeting in almost two years, the underlying message of the G7 leaders was about the importance of the world's democracies uniting as they face the biggest challenges since World War II.

    Namely, the pandemic, China's growing power and climate change.

    On an assertive China, Mr Morrison has the G7 nations on side, but there was immediate criticism that the leaders had not gone far enough in tangible action against Beijing.

    But, in a sign of the Western economies starting to muscle up against Beijing, China featured in the final communique.

    The leaders agreed to call out human rights abuses in Hong Kong and Xinjiang and take action against forced labour practices in the agricultural, solar and garment sectors.

    Mr Morrison confirmed he spoke with G7 leaders about the infamous list of 14 grievances against Australia from a Chinese diplomat in Canberra late last year, saying it was no surprise to some of them.

    "To have set those out and there is not a country who would sit around that table that would see concession on any of those 14 points as something they also would tolerate," he said.

    "So I think it just set out very clearly that there are differences in world view here, and they may never be able to be resolved.

    "But living with China, which is the goal, also requires us to be very clear about what our values are and what our principles are and how our countries are run, free of interference."

    The G7 leaders also called for a full thorough investigation into the origins of COVID-19, which will infuriate China’s President Xi Jinping.

    The Chinese petulant child like diplomacy has drawn countries closer together in a mutual self interest. Maybe they should have paid more attention to Sun Tzu. Have your enemies concentrating on what divides then not what unites them. The are shooting themselves in the foot with this war mongering belacose rhetoric.

    Australia vows to ‘vigorously defend’ itself against China WTO complaint


    Beijing has launched a formal challenge against Australian tariffs on several Chinese products in the latest escalation of the dispute between the two countries.



    The Chinese government’s decision to take action through the World Trade Organization follows Australia’s own twin challenges against Beijing’s imposition of tariffs on Australian barley and wine.

    The Chinese commerce ministry announced late on Thursday that it would use WTO procedures to challenge Australia’s measures targeting railway wheels, wind towers, and stainless steel sink products from China.

    Well that should be a tasty pair of fixtures.

    You have to admire FIFA's sense of humour. I expect the chinkies will be whinging again.
