Former Australian PM calls for solidarity with Taiwan

  Former Australian PM calls for solidarity with Taiwan TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Australia’s former prime minister has accused China of being a bully and expressed enthusiastic support for Taiwan while visiting the democratically ruled island. “Nothing is more pressing right now than solidarity with Taiwan," former Prime Minister Tony Abbott told a conference Friday in Taiwan. China’s government has been seeking to isolate Taiwan, which it claims as its own territory. It has stepped up military harassment of the island by flying fighter jets towards Taiwan, with a particularly large demonstration of force starting last Friday and continuing into this week.

like Dan Andrews, Prime Minister of the State of Victoria, announced on Tuesday (local time), unvaccinated professionals will probably not receive a visa for the Australian Open. He does not think that this was possible in January next year without a weekly quarantine. "It does not matter to the virus, where you are in the world ranking list or how many Grand Slams you won," Andrews explained his attitude.

This endangers the participation of the title of Novak Djokovic. The world ranking heart doubts against the newspaper "Blic" whether he would travel to Australia. He wanted to play the tournament as it was the Grand Slam, "where I had the most success," but this could not currently be able to schedule this: "I do not know if I will travel to Australia. The current situation is not Well".

Djokovic criticizes and silent

The 34-year-old had repeatedly publicly positioned itself as a critic of Corona vaccine in the past, avoiding a clear answer to the question of his vaccination status: "This is a private matter. Too many people take out to ask questions and judge other people ". His restraint justifies the "Djoker" with that could be interpreted wrong whatever you answer.

Australia belongs to the countries with the toughest entry requirements worldwide and had already held the Australian Open only under the highest safety conditions after several-week quarantine of the players. Whether this happens again in the coming January, or the tournament may take place without the ninial winner Djokovic, remains open.
