Former prime minister Tony Abbott has used a Lowy Institute speech to warn that the crisis in Hong Kong may require targeted sanctions to be imposed on China. He also argued that Australia’s strategy to deal with the growing power of China should include an increase in military spending, which is currently set at two per cent of GDP. Abbott also said Australia needs to establish closer relations with India. He added that it might be time for Australia to undertake freedom of navigation exercises in the South China Sea.
