‘China will now be able to hold a dagger to our throat’: Alan Jones
By Sky News
China’s construction of a $40 billion “industrial city” in PNG will give it control over all maritime traffic through the Torres Strait – a necessary trade route for our oil imports, according to Sky News host Alan Jones.
“Our Government seems to have forgotten that China … are now building an industrial city in Daru in one of PNG’s most impoverished provinces,” Mr Jones said.
“A $40 billion Chinese city with hardly a whimper from Canberra. ”
And like the armada of fishing vessels, they are calling it a multi-function fishing industrial park. Multi-functional alright.
“Let me say bluntly, if the Chinese build a base on Daru, that base will be able to control all maritime traffic through the Torres Strait.
“What the Chinese are doing in Daru and Darwin, is what they have already done in the South China Sea and in Tibet and in numerous other places.
“They are annexing territory. They are expanding.
“China must know we are fair dinkum.
“How long does Government remain silent about the sell-off of Australia to China and its naked expansionism in our region?”
