CHINA SHOULD NOT WORRY ON CLOSER AUSTRALIA-JAPAN TIES

SYDNEY: Closer defense ties between Japan and Australia should not raise concerns in regional superpower China, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Tuesday. Canberra and Tokyo struck a major agreement on Monday to enhance trade and security ties, elevating the bilateral relationship to a new level. Abbott told ABC radio Australia he was takings no side in territorial disputes between China and other nations, and the growing relationship with Japan did not target anyone else. “It’s not against any specific country and as far as I am concerned—as far as just about every country is concerned—what we want to see is more democracy, more freedom, more respect for the rule of law,” he said when asked about China.
