Tan stated that the Chinese military was ready to stop any interference from outside. His statement came days after Australia’s defense minister, Peter Dutton, argued that it would be “inconceivable”Canberra will not be joining the US in defense of Taiwan if Washington does so.
Dutton changed his mind later, saying that Sunday’s Australian response would be on the basis of Dutton’s words. “our country’s best interests.”
