Peter Jennings from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute said Australia and Japan were concerned about Beijing and "uncertain about the behaviour of China's military forces in the region".

"Neither of us wants to see China as a threat, but there's undeniable concern about Chinese behaviour and I think that's leading to the two countries getting closer," Mr Jennings said.

Mr Turnbull said he would also discuss regional security challenges and in particular, North Korea's reckless and criminal behaviour.

The strategy to bolster defence cooperation comes amid a dispute over Beijing's activities in the South China Sea, the strategic sub-region of the Indo Pacific.

Last year, Australia discussed joint exercises with Japan and the United States, but India blocked the bid over concerns it could inflame diplomatic tensions with China.

India and Japan see themselves as competing rivals to China in their grand infrastructure plans. They may eventually cooperate with each other as the US switches it's focus from more traditional partners Pakistan to Russia's traditional ally India. The US walking away from the TPP and a buffer to China has left much of Asia looking for new alliances and partnerships.

How dumb are Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen.

Porn actress Stormy Daniels(stage name) is going on US ABC last year to talk about her having sex with Trump a year after he married Melania. 

Cohen pays her $130k to silence her She signs an agreement to not disclose, but she signs it under her stage name, so it is not legally binding, and stupid Cohen doesn't notice. Now she is blabbing about it and getting another payday

And India won't let you play? Pakistan doesn't have an ally either. There maybe an opening for OZ to have an ally in the neighborhood. And you can send our Marines home so we yanks can put them to good use.

Pakistan are doing ok, as will Afghanistan. The reason US has dropped Pakistan is that they have signed on with China and are expanding a trade route down through the major Islamic province of China through the pass down through Pakistan and Afghanistan to the Indian Ocean India see that as security risk to them and their claims to Kashmir. The US has come onboard to back them

Not as simple as that, but who am I to question your explanations of why we yanks do what we do. Afterall, who knows more about we yanks than you. I am totally mesmerized by your intuitive knowledge about our corrupt, deviant, violent, and imperialistic society and politics. For the life of me I can't understand why India doesn't want to play with OZ. Do you think they are intimidated by a country with such intelligence as you yourself provide? The maps are a nice deflection though.

No it isn't as simple as that The quarter of Afghanistan that you hold by a thread is cooperating with India to destabilise the three quarters of Afgh who are controlled by Taliban backed Russia to stop the project Gets very complicated and could get ugly

There’s much more to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor than the rosy headlines touting friendship between Islamabad and Beijing.

While China has been content to free ride on the relative stability maintained by the United States in South Asia, its willingness to build on these efforts may prove instrumental in compelling Pakistan to give up its support of terror.

Both China and Russia are Venezuela's biggest creditors with over $60 billion in loans over the last 10 years Corruption and mismanagement have left them in dire straits Russia last week negotiated new minimum repayment terms for their $3.4b in loans loans over 10 years and China have held off on pressuring them to repay saying they are confident Venezuela can work their way through it.
