Anthony Albanese has been Australia’s Prime Minister for less than a month, but China is already testing whether he’ll stand up to intimidation as well as his predecessor did. Australia said Sunday that on May 26 a Chinese fighter jet intercepted an Australian surveillance aircraft conducting a routine mission in international airspace near the South China Sea.
Australia’s Defense Ministry said the Chinese jet pulled alongside the aircraft, then moved in front, releasing flares and chaff that “resulted in a dangerous maneuver which posed a safety threat” to the Australian plane and its crew. Australia lodged a complaint with Beijing, but this was probably no accident.
