Today I met with China’s Premier, Li Keqiang, for the Australia-China Annual Leaders’ Meeting. We had very positive discussions on a range of bilateral and international issues.
Australia has been part of this forum for 44 years in terms of our relationship with ASEAN, and that we were the first partner and we are still here today.
Australia is proud to be ASEAN’s longest-standing dialogue partner. Our vision of the Indo-Pacific has ASEAN at its centre, and we share a vital interest in the stability and prosperity of this shared region.
This is an amazing city. It’s got such a heart, it’s got such a soul, and Sisto I think captured that spirit and that soul in a way that it’d be hard to replicate.
I am pleased to announce that His Excellency Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, will visit Darwin on 16 November.
Haidi Lun Stroud-Watts: Let’s get straight into it. Australia-China relations, Wang Yi – the Foreign Minister – said last week they’re not competitors, we’re not rivals here.
Matt Taylor: The Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is joining us now live from his office in Sydney.
David Speers: Prime Minister, thanks for your time. Can we begin with the terrorist attack in Melbourne on Friday?
I will travel to Singapore over 13-15 November to participate in the East Asia Summit and bilateral meetings with some of Australia’s key partners.
Host: Welcome Prime Minister, it’s good to have you here after a busy weekend, can we talk about polls?
