Natalie Barr: Prime Minister Scott Morrison joins me now from Sydney, morning to you.
Well it’s wonderful to be here and to Your Excellency, Mr President Ram Nath Kovind.
Australia, like the rest of the world, marvels at the transformation of India that is occurring before our eyes. The facts are compelling. India is already the fastest-growing large economy in the world.
Being an Australian citizen is a privilege. It is a privilege that carries with it expectations on those who hold it. People who commit acts of terrorism have rejected absolutely everything that this country stands for.
A strong economy is important because it pays for hospitals. It pays for schools. It pays for affordable medicines. It pays for a strong defence force.
The Government will seek to change the Australian Citizenship Act so dual citizens convicted of a terrorism offence in Australia could lose Australian citizenship irrespective of the sentence they receive.
