University of Melbourne’s Professor Michael Wesley says he finds it “very hard to believe” that Scott Morrison wouldn’t go to a G20 meeting, particularly given the Prime Minister’s “relatively triumphant” performance at the G7 meeting in the UK.
“I think quite a lot has changed, obviously the relationship with France is now at a delicate stage,” Professor Wesley told Sky News Australia.
“The relationship with the United States and the UK, the rest of the European Union, is very important.
“And of course, with the leaders of India and Japan in the aftermath of the Quad meetings.
“So, to be able to turn up to the G20 meeting and then not go to Glasgow would look really, really odd.
“So, that’s why I’m continuing to think that he will be going.”
