For the first time, Australia has been invited to attend and Prime Minister Scott Morrison is due in France.

Foreign Minister Marise Payne urged Pyongyang to end the "provocative actions", saying the launches were a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

They also did nothing for regional peace and stability while raising the risk of a miscalculation.

"Australia once more calls on North Korea to choose the path of dialogue. We commend the commitment demonstrated by the United States and the Republic of Korea to continue talks with North Korea," Senator Payne said in a statement.

"Australia joins with many other nations in seeking permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula, including the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation of North Korea."

Malcolm Blight slams Adelaide as the 'weakest' he has seen.
AFL legend Malcolm Blight has put Adelaide on blast, saying the state of the Crows is "weakest" that he has seen. The Crows have struggled off the back half of the season, dropping from 3rd in the middle of the year, all the way to 11th at the end. Adelaide finished the year with seven losses from their last nine games. Blight, who coached the club to their last two premierships in 1997 and 1998, was scathing of the club after their horror end to the season. “This is a mediocre football club and until someone actually grabs it by the throat and changes it, it’s going to continue,” Blight told Sportsday SA.
