Australia gets its Mandarin-speaking, China expert prime minister back

…at least until mid-September, when Labor party leader Kevin Rudd faces off against the slightly more China-wary Liberal Party leader Tony Abbott in the Federal Election.

Kevin Rudd’s comments to US Sec’y of State Hillary Clinton were released in the Wikileaks Cablegate data dump. In them Rudd said nations should integrate China into the international community, ”while also preparing to deploy force if everything goes wrong”.

I wonder if the PRC will welcome the leadership change in Australia. They certainly know Kevin.
