The former US Ambassador to China says Australia must work closely with its allies in standing-up to China.

Max Baucus said while the threat China posed was often exaggerated, the Communist regime would continue to push the limits until its allies formed a strong front.

“When allies work together and stand firm in respect to China, China backs off and doesn’t proceed to go any further,” he said.

“China’s very good at dividing and conquering countries metaphorically, and it’s very good at dividing and conquering companies metaphorically.

“The more cooperation between the United States, Australia and allies vis-a-vis China, the more effective we’re going to be."
