As reported by Reuters, Australian Prime Minister Morrison stated at a press conference in Canberra that Australia maintains a consistent stance of continuous support for freedom of navigation in the South China Sea.

Mr. Morrison added that Australia plays a "constructive role" in the South China Sea and will continue to take action, express its point of view and launch its own initiatives.

Prime Minister Morrison made this statement after reporters questioned Australia's response to the United States' stand on the South China Sea, which was announced a few days ago by the U.S. State Department.
