Abstract

An Asialink blog by Anthony Milner and Jennifer Fang suggests the importance for Australia of joining with its neighbours in full acknowledgement of China’s leadership. Contrary to Milner and Fang's assertion, the nations of Southeast Asia are far from falling over themselves to acknowledge China's leadership. In fact, the debates in countries across the region resemble those in Australia and show widespread recognition of the threat posed by China to regional security.
