‘Not presumptive’ talk of attending Quad meeting next week: Anthony Albanese

Opposition leader Anthony Albanese denies it is presumptive to talk about attending the Quad meeting next Tuesday as prime minister with Penny Wong, who would be foreign minister if Labor is elected.

“The Prime Minister’s Department and Cabinet, who I met with, are putting in place the provisions for each scenario about what would happen if the government is re-elected, what would happen in Labor is elected and what will happen if the outcome is uncertain.” Albanese told Sky News Australia.

“The Quad leaders’ meeting is important, the United States is our most important ally, and India and Japan, with whom we also have important relationships, are vital to Australia’s future.”
