Australian Defense Minister Peter Dutton has declared that it would be impossible for Australia not to support the United States if steps were taken to protect Taiwan.
Dutton said in a statement to the newspaper “The Australian”, published today, Saturday, that “it would be impossible for us not to support the United States in its steps if the United States decided to take them.”
He continued: “We must talk frankly about it, and we must look at all the facts and circumstances without any prejudgment, and there may be circumstances in which we will not make such a choice, but I cannot imagine those circumstances.”
The Australian defense minister noted that China “has clearly indicated its intention to enter Taiwan, and we must ensure a high level of preparedness and greater deterrence for our capabilities, and I believe that in this way we can put our country in a position of strength.”
And US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken had announced earlier that the United States and its allies would take steps if China used force to change the current status of the island of Taiwan, which has been ruled by an independent government for several decades, and which China considers part of its territory.
On Tuesday, China sent a naval patrol to the Taiwan Strait, with the Chinese Defense Ministry condemning the US delegation’s visit to Taiwan. China has not ruled out the use of force to control the island.
