Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull made it clear on the weekend of 10-11 December that he thinks China has been trying to interfere in Australian politics. Some China analysts have suggested that Turnbull might have been wiser to voice his concerns over the issue in private rather than in public, and that he might have been trying to use the issue to score domestic political points. Foreign Minister Julie Bishop believes that the relationship between Australia and China is strong enough to survive the current controversy.
