Mr Downer,.. became a lobbyist, sat on the board of the Chinese technology company Huawei, which Australia banned from building the national broadband network. He labelled the idea that Huawei would be used to engage in Chinese cyber-wars or hackings was "completely absurd."
But Russia hacking DNC 100% true! 🤔🤔🤔
More on this..
"Australia's longest serving foreign minister Alexander Downer has cautioned against treating China as though it is Russia, saying Moscow is lashing out and in decline while Beijing is a rising power focussed on domestic prosperity.
When asked about concerns of China and Russia advancing authoritarianism Mr Downer warned against likening the two.
"Russia is a declining power, desperate for international relevance and lashing out left, right and centre," he said.
"China is a rising power ...
it's completely different - China doesn't have territorial ambitions. China is much more focused on securing its domestic economy and to secure its domestic economy it needs secure sources of supply, stable really, stable sources of supply. Of raw materials, food and so-on."
