@trussliz@MarisePayne Liz Truss: Ukraine has a proud history. They suffered through state sponsored famine. If they have to, Ukrainians will fight for their country. Invasion will only lead to a quagmire.
@trussliz@MarisePayne Liz Truss: The Kremlin haven't learned the lessons of history. They say they want stability while they destablise others. We urge President Putin to desist and step back from Ukraine before he makes a strategic mistake.
@trussliz@mfullilove@MarisePayne Marise Payne: As liberal democracies it is only natural that we should stand together. That applies whether it is China's actions against Lithuania; DPRK missile testing.
@trussliz@mfullilove@MarisePayne Marise Payne: A close UK-Australia relationship is vital. We are faced with coercion, with disinformation and cyber attacks. There is disregard for the rules and norms that have given us peace and security.
@trussliz@mfullilove@MarisePayne Marise Payne: It would be a mistake to think that what binds us is a misty-eyed view of our past. As distinct sovereign nations we cherish our own principles in our own way.
