Australia says China’s provocations at odds with peaceful rhetoric
as examples of China’s actions being at odds with its rhetoric.“We’re all familiar with the frequent claims of the Chinese government that it is committed to peace, cooperation and development,” Dutton said in a speech in Canberra.Former Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull says Huawei 5G would leave Canada’s networks vulnerable to China
