Australian Government coat of arms

Prime Minister of Australia

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP

  • Australia mourns the passing of Shimon Peres, his life was as eventful as it was long: his passion for the State of Israel, which he helped found, as strong as his commitment to peace.

  • Farewell to Tangles. Max Walker was one of Australia’s great cricketers - but he was much more than a cricketer: footballer, architect, commentator, story-teller and, above all, great Aussie character.

  • I have requested that His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, represent Australia and Australians at the funeral service of Shimon Peres.

  • Australia mourns the passing of Shimon Peres - nation builder and peacemaker.

  • I’ve just come from Washington yesterday and everybody I met, from the intelligence community to the Defence Secretary - everybody spoke so warmly and so appreciatively of the work that the Australian Defence Force does right around the world in partnership in our alliance with the United States.

  • No institution or infrastructure is more important to the future prosperity and freedom of our global community than the Internet. It powers, it punctuates our daily lives, supports our business transactions and joins our nations in what is truly a world wide web.

  • It’s great to be here in Washington meeting with security leaders, reinforcing our strong alliance, our strong partnership for freedom. We’ve met today with the Director of the National Security Agency, the Director of the CIA, the Director of National Intelligence and with the Defence Secretary Ash Carter.
