Malcolm Fraser: Australia - US Relations in the Asian Century
MELBOURNE, 25 September 2012 – Former Prime Minister of Australia The Right Honorable Malcolm Fraser AC CH has questioned the nature of Australia’s relationship with the United States in a broad-ranging speech to an audience of over 400.
Fraser describes US policy towards China as "containment" and praised the measured response from Beijing:
“China has refused to be provoked, and that is not surprising because they are well aware that this is an election year in the United States. We need to be aware that China can be profoundly measured in international affairs.”
