Statement regarding AUSMIN

AUSMIN is the single most important opportunity to express Australia’s interests within our alliance with the United States. There is strong bipartisan support for Australia’s alliance with the United States – our principal security partner and close friend. Labor has consistently said Australia should work within the alliance to maximise constructive US engagement in the region and the world. And beyond the alliance, Labor has made clear that Australia needs to work more closely with aligned nations – that’s part of being more self-reliant and ambitious in protecting and promoting Australia’s national interests. That’s how Australia can shape the region we want: a region that not only respects sovereignty but is also politically stable and prosperous.
