Meeting with @shinjirokoiz, former Japanese minister and MP and @nishino_daisuke MP. It's important to build ties with a vital strategic partner.
Met today with Taiwan's Economic Office Director-General in Sydney to express my solidarity with Taiwan in the face of Chinese government belligerence. Democracies should stand together in these challenging times.
Thank you dear @HonTonyAbbott for the fascinating and thought-provoking discussion. By the way, I'm truly impressed by your knowledge of Polish🇵🇱 and Ukrainian🇺🇦 histo6PcX

There was also a moving video message from the late Shinzo Abe, a reminder of the loss the world has just endured. The strength of our countries’ friendship is a special part of his legacy.
It was a thrill to receive Japan’s Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun - which I regard as something for our country rather than just for me; as a tribute to the “special relationship” between our two countries that’s been nurtured by many prime ministers over the years.

Well done @AlboMP and @SenatorWong. Abe-san was a great friend of Australia.…

I was the beneficiary of many acts of friendship including the attempted submarine partnership which would have eliminated any capability gap prior to our going nuclear. This is a dreadful loss for Japan, for Australia and for a world where democracies stand strong and together
He was the father of the Quad, a friend to Taiwan, and a staunch defender of liberal values. He concluded the more recent FTA, as well as adding a key strategic dimension to our already intimate partnership.
With the death of Shinzo Abe in an act of shocking violence, Australia has lost a great friend and Japan has lost its most significant post-war leader. Under Abe, Japan assumed its rightful place as the leading democracy of the western Pacific.
Former Australian PM @HonTonyAbbott says Shinzo Abe was “an outstanding Prime Minister of a great country” and “the thoughts of everyone should be with this great man at this sad and shocking time.” @9NewsAUS…

This is a shocking act of violence against one of the world's leading democratic statesmen and we all have to hope and pray that he somehow pulls through. Australia has never had a better friend in Japan than Shinzo Abe, which is why we are so numbed by this appalling act.
We are all shocked to hear the news. Such an outrageous act should never be condoned. We are following the situation with great concern and we are praying for him.

He's been a great friend to Australia and one of the authors of the AUKUS deal to give us nuclear subs. Politics is a hard and unforgiving business but it's essential for the well-being of nations. He deserves our gratitude, especially on this day of personal disappointment.
Well done @AlboMP on visiting Kyiv and pledging more heavy weaponry to the heroic Ukrainians. Putin's aggression cannot be allowed to succeed.
I join @AlboMP, together with all Australians, in thanking QE for her 70 years on the throne. The Monarchy has been a great source of unity and stability.

Congratulations @HonTonyAbbott on your work securing the trade deal between India and Australia. It is always a pleasure to compare notes with you my friend, especially so in New Delhi this week.

All credit to the two PMs, their trade ministers and respective teams for bringing this about. It's also another proud day in the long and storied family relationship between Britain and Australia and a fine economic complement to the historic AUKUS arrangements.
Wonderful news that the Australia-UK trade deal has been formally signed. Apart from the Australia-NZ FTA, this is the world's most comprehensive bilateral deal that will mean fully free trade between our two countries (with a phase-in for some agricultural products).

There has been no more competent or more assiduous minister throughout the life of this government and he leaves very big shoes to fill.
