The former Ambassador of Japan to Australia, Mr. Sumio Kusaka, urged Australia to support his country in joining the Western "five-eye" intelligence-sharing network and to include TW in the Trans-Pacific Partnership relationship Trade Agreement (TPP)...

As for Prime Minister Scott Morrison's plan to visit Tokyo later this year, Mr. Kao called for a new era of cooperation to help fight "a strong and bullied China" and a retreat from global governance.

The Asialink Asia Association of the University of Melbourne commissioned and published an article in the Australian newspaper, Cao He Chun-nan that in the face of the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, Japan and Australia —— already "especially strategic partners "—— must strengthen regional order by promoting trade, sharing intelligence and development, and working with like-minded partners to" find a way to live together with China ".

"How can Japan and Australia better manage this global turmoil? "Mr. Takasaka wrote. "In many ways, they are natural partners. In the face of this turmoil, they will naturally and gladly cooperate more closely and work to shape the regional environment in accordance with their national interests. Their interests seem to be very similar, if not identical, and consistent. "

While U.S. President Donald Trump "alienated foreign allies and" made a strong enemy ", Mr. Takasaka said Australia and Japan had "great potential" to work together to improve the economic and strategic order in the Indian Pacific.

"Japan and Australia, for example, could join forces to help meet the infrastructure needs of the less developed countries of the Indian Pacific region and help China understand that these countries need to improve their infrastructure not just by relying on their'Belt and Road' initiative ," he said.

"Japan and Australia should work with the United States, India and ASEAN countries to promote a free and open Indian Pacific region. Further broadening our scope to include like-minded countries, such as Britain and France, will be an effective and practical way to curb China's dangerous ambitions. "

Mr. Takasaka said that if Japan were allowed to join the "five-eye" intelligence of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand alliance —— this is the role the country is constantly seeking —— Australia and Japan may work more closely together.

"As six eyes, our countries can coordinate their policies more effectively and achieve better results. "

Mr. Takasaka said that Australia and Japan should urge the United States to strengthen the Trans-Pacific Partnership relationship Trade Agreement under the leadership government Biden and possibly expand the TPP—— on the same basis as TW's accession to APEC (APEC) by "inviting TW to join as a jurisdiction.

"We want TW to join before China, which will try to prevent TW from joining ," he wrote.

Mr. Caoban criticized China's "unacceptable sovereignty claims" in the East and South China Seas, its "abuse of national security laws" and its "military threat ". against TW" in Hong Kong

"China seems certain to become the dominant player in the Asia-Pacific region," he said.

"Anyway, we must find a way to peace with China. Japan and Australia, as natural partners, can make a significant contribution to this goal through closer cooperation and to a free and prosperous Indian Pacific region. "

A few days ago, the Federal Foreign minister Marise Payne met with their counterparts in Japan, India and the United States in Tokyo and held four-party security talks.

The Payne senator said after the meeting that the members of the Quad alliance were determined to "support a region of resilient sovereignty States" and strengthen a rules-based international order.

The remarks of the United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (Mike Pompeo) went further and called for the Quartet alliance to be transformed into a "genuine security system ".

Japan has long sought to become a member of the proprietary "five-eye intelligence-sharing network ", but it is understood that Western intelligence agencies are sceptical of the ability of their Japanese counterparts to" keep the most secret and confidential secrets shared among alliance members.
