The China crisis Australia 'won't be able to escape'

There is a potential military crisis on the horizon that "Australia won't be able to escape," experts warn.  China has vowed to reclaim a defiant Taiwan with the leader of the Chinese Communist Party, Xi Jinping, previously declaring he will take the country by force if necessary.  Australian Strategic Policy Institute Executive Director Peter Jennings fears Australia will have nowhere to hide if that happens.

Speaking on Sky News, he said the US would be drawn into any military escalation "and you better believe the United States will be expecting the help of its two key allies in the region – Japan and Australia – to play a role in the defence of Taiwan". "This is something we won't be able to escape it seems to me," he said.
