Sir PHILIP McBRIDE (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - In order to make a comprehensive statement on this subject it would be necessary ito have .one prepared. In reply to the .right honorable gentleman, let me say that the Australian position is identical with that of the .United States in the sense that -the Australian 'Government fully supports the United .States in its .efforts to .ensure that there is -no resort to force in any territorial dispute over the Formosa Strait. The Australian Government is hopeful that the resumed ambassadorial .talks between representatives of the United States and Communist China will result in a relaxation of tension .and, eventually, a negotiated settlement.
