Australia Concerned Over Misguided Policy of China in the South China Sea

Published

Is Australia anxious about Chinese policy in the South China Sea? Australian Defence Minister while addressing the military leaders in Singapore spoke about participating in multilateral activities in the South China Sea.  During his talks, Christopher Pyne asked China to display more responsible behaviour in the South China Sea region.

The Australian leader blamed China for promoting anxiety throughout the region with its expansionist policies. He also vowed that Australia is prepared to participate in joint multilateral military exercises to send a message to Beijing.

Pyne criticized Beijing’s construction of artificial islands as an example of their misguided policy in the South China Sea. He also said that nations in the Indo-Pacific should not have to make choices between economic gain and sovereignty.

Striking a somewhat friendly tone, Pyne said that no country intends to choke China’s growth or prosperity, but rather, nations want to ensure that international rules-based order is maintained for the stability and prosperity of the region as a whole.

“The resolving disputes in the South China Sea in accordance with international law would build confidence in China’s willingness to support and champion a strategic culture that respects the rights of all states” Pyne concluded.

Recently, Australia allocated more than US$65 billion dollars (AU$ 90 billion) to construct a new fleet of submarines, frigates, and other vessels to intensify Australia’s defensive capabilities at sea.
