Prime Minister Scott Morrison has told parliament that the comprehensive strategic partnership with China has been highly successful. However, amid growing tensions between the two nations, Morrison has stressed that Australia will always act in the national interest when relations become strained. Meanwhile, the federal government’s stance on China has received support from Daniel Walton, the national secretary of the Labor-aligned Australian Workers’ Union. He has urged the government to resist pressure from China over domestic and foreign policy decisions.
