‘Military consequence’: Prime Minister’s ‘red line’ for China ‘truly bizarre’

The Australian’s Overseas Editor Greg Sheridan says Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s declaration of a “red line” for China was “truly bizarre”.

Mr Morrison claimed that it could be a “red line” for Australia if China have been to ascertain a navy base on the Solomon Islands.

“The term red line means they’ll be terrible and adverse consequences for you; it normally means there’ll be a military consequence for you,” Mr Sheridan informed Sky Information Australia.

“There seems to be no purpose to this rhetoric other than domestic politics, but I think it makes us look ridiculous internationally.

“This is either something that a very powerful nation does or that a completely impotent nation does when it can do nothing other than make a declaration.”
