- Prime Minister Anthony Albanese is attending four regional meetings beginning from Friday.
- The meetings include the ASEAN-Australia, East Asia, G20 and APEC summits.
- One-on-one meetings on the sidelines of the summits are still being finalised.
He left the door open to speaking with Mr Xi, who will be at the G20 summit in Bali as well as APEC in Thailand.
“It’s part of normal healthy bilateral relations, even when countries have differences that we meet and we have an opportunity to discuss and exchange views,” he said.
“At each summit I will emphasise Australia’s commitment to the global transition to net zero, and our vision for a stable, peaceful, resilient and prosperous region.”
