China ‘must be told’ Australia ‘won’t accommodate manipulation’ Sky News host Alan Jones says China is “very much in the news and so it should be” due to Australia's declining trust of its biggest trading partner. “Beijing has to be asked to respect our wish to protect our interests and they must be told we won't accommodate outside manipulation of our system of government," he said.

Trade Minister Simon Birmingham has issued some advice to his coalition colleagues: think before you speak.

It came after Liberal backbencher Andrew Hastie compared the rise of China to that of Nazi Germany in an opinion piece last week, drawing a mixed reaction from his coalition colleagues and condemnation from Beijing.

"I would certainly encourage any colleague or indeed anybody making comments around sensitive foreign policy matters to pose a couple of questions," he told ABC's Insiders program on Sunday.

In the case of China, he said the national interest was best served by ensuring Australia engaged in a constructive way to make sure it was a responsible citizen in the region and globally, and respected the sovereignty of other nations.

Labor defence spokesman Richard Marles admits China is a complex issue, given its economic ties with Australia and how it asserts itself in the region.

"That does present challenges for us," Mr Marles told Sky News, while describing Mr Hastie's comments as "incendiary".

"There isn't a cold war going on here, China is not the Soviet Union."

But the deputy opposition leader believes there must be a bipartisan approach to how Australia handles the growing power of China.

"We have got to have a settled position going forward over the next few decades and that does require bipartisanship," he said.

Senator Birmingham said the government already gave the opposition with briefings "when required".

"Of course we will work with the opposition where it is appropriate to do so," he said.
