In an address at the National Defense College in Delhi, Australian Deputy Prime Minister Richard Marles said the global rules-based order matters everywhere, including the tallest place on Earth, which is referred to as a slanting reference to the eastern Ladakh region. is seen.

“The attack on Indian forces along the Line of Actual Control in 2020 was a warning we all should heed. Australia stood up for the sovereignty of India then and continues to do so,” he said in an apparent reference to the Galwan Valley conflict. “It is important that China remains committed to resolving this dispute through a process of dialogue consistent with international law. The global rules-based order matters everywhere, including the highest place on Earth,” he said.

Is required.

The Australian Deputy Prime Minister said that large-scale military construction should be transparent and they should be accompanied by state craft that reassures other countries. “China’s military construction is now the largest and most ambitious any country has seen since the end of World War II. It is important that China’s neighbors do not see this construction as a risk to themselves,” he said. Marles, who is also Australia’s defense minister, said insecurity is what drives the arms race and India’s own experience “shows this adage the most.” He shared some of his extensive conversations with Defense Minister Rajnath Singh. The remarks came hours later, during which they reviewed regional security metrics and reaffirmed their shared objective for an open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific amid rising Chinese bullying in the region.

“As we continue to enhance our defense and security cooperation, the pursuit of long-term reciprocal access arrangements is the logical next step. It will not be lost on any of us that deeper Australian-Indian security cooperation is often seen as a response to growing China,” he said. The Australian Deputy Prime Minister said there was nothing remarkable about the two democracies working together in response to the strategic change. At the same time, he said that it would be wrong to believe that China is at the center of every decision.

“We all expect a more powerful China to be stronger in regional and international affairs. But what is important is that the use of Chinese power demonstrates the characteristics necessary for our shared prosperity and security,” Marles said. “Respect agreed rules and norms. Along trade and investment flows based on agreed rules and binding treaty commitments. And where disputes between states are settled through negotiations and in accordance with international law,” he said. “This is important when it comes to the re-arming that we are seeing in the Indo-Pacific,” he said.

The Australian Deputy Prime Minister said that his visit to India reflects his government’s commitment to placing India at the center of Australia’s vision of the Indo-Pacific and beyond. Marles also spoke about the Russian attack on Ukraine, saying that the war in Europe is another warning.

“I am not here to lecture India on how it should respond to this conflict, or how it should manage its relations with Russia. Every country needs to make its own choices,” he said. Russia’s war on Ukraine teaches us that we cannot rely solely on economic interdependence to stop conflict; And this resistance can fail when a country’s resolute military build-up creates an imbalance of military power,” he said. Marles said Australia is taking lessons from the conflict.

“This informs my government’s intention to transform the Australian Defense Force into one with more powerful deterrence capabilities, including long-range and precision strike weapons, offensive and defensive cyber, and field-denial systems,” he said. Told. “The same logic underlies the decision to acquire nuclear-powered submarines with the US and UK under AUKUS. A partnership that will guide the accelerated development of advanced defense capabilities where they have the most impact, such as quantum technology, artificial intelligence, underwater warfare, hypersonics and counter-hypersonics,” he said.

The AUKUS (Australia, UK and US) security partnership announced last September will facilitate Australia to acquire technology to build nuclear-powered submarines.
