Australia’s Dilemma: the Chinese Bearing Gifts

Tensions in Australian-Chinese relations spread gloom over developments in the past week. At the Group of Twenty summit in Hangzhou, Chinese President Xi Jinping reproached Malcolm Turnbull for hindering Chinese investment in Australia. At the same time, Labor Senator Sam Dastyari was forced to resign from the opposition’s Shadow Cabinet following a controversy over the payment of his expenses by Chinese organizations. The “New Asian perspectives” blog regards this turbulence as the price Canberra has to pay for its strategy of maneuvering between Beijing and Washington.

G20 or G2?

Antalya’s G 20 (15-16 November) was supposed to show to the world the wonders of Erdoğan’s Turkey, but reality has been different. The events in Paris have pushed terrorism high on the agenda, and the instability of the world economy was of course the other key issue. In fact little in Antalya has been achieved. An agreement between the West and Russia in fighting terrorism has not yet been finalised; and on economic issues, the USA and China dominate and leave everyone else far behind.

Japan Exempted from Russian Countermeasures: Russian-Japanese Partnership Reaffirmed

        In the evening of 7 August 2014, Tokyo was struck by a happy surprise: Japan was exempted from Russia’s countermeasures designed in response to Western sanctions. The Jiji Press –a major Japanese media with global networks– immediately reported on its headline that “日本は制裁対象外=欧米の青果など禁輸,” meaning “Japan to be excluded from Russian counter-sanctions –trade bans to be imposed on Western fruits and other products." While the contents of Russian countermeasures have not yet been fully materialized, it is evident that Russian-Japanese partnership was given a special consideration by the Kremlin.
