Dialogue between China and Australia a ‘very positive outcome’ from the Singapore summit

ASPI Washington DC director Mark Watson says the Shangri-La dialogue between Australia and China was a “very positive outcome” of the summit.

“Certainly, Defense Secretary (Richard) Marles had a fantastic opportunity there to defend Australia’s position,” he told Sky News Australia.

Mr Watson said that normally a conversation between two diplomats would be a means to an end, but here it was a “pretty good result to have the discussion at all”.
