Sky News senior reporter Caroline Marcus says Paul Keating’s National Press Club address shows the former prime minister “hasn’t updated his rhetoric” on China.

“This year we’ve really seen China ramp up its aggressiveness, its own cultural revolution,” she told Sky News host Paul Murray.

“It just didn’t sit comfortably with me at all, the idea that he just wanted us to brush off Taiwan and not care about what China has done to the people over there.

“What it’s done to people in Hong Kong, what it’s done to Uyghur Muslims in the China mainland and just act like it’s not important to us.

“It should be important to us – Taiwan’s a massive strong democracy in our region and their health matters to us.”
