Trump to host Australian Prime Minister in February

Trump to host Australian Prime Minister in February”

US President Donald Trump will meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at the White House on February 23, the White House said in a statement on Thursday.

The two leaders will discuss a range of shared bilateral, regional and global priorities including fighting terrorism, promoting economic growth and expanding security as well as defence cooperation, the White House said in a statement cited by Xinhua news agency.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will join Trump on February 23 for talks on issues including "fighting terrorism, promoting economic growth, and expanding security and defense cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region".

Despite outward bonhomie, the advent of Trump has invigorated a debate over Australia's place in the world and whether its future lies with an unpredictable United States or a closer relationship with China, its top trading partner. "Our friendship is underpinned by a deep alignment of shared values, including freedom, democracy and the rule of law", he said.

It's expected Mr Turnbull will also raise the issue of the USA taking part in the revised Trans-Pacific Partnership, after Mr Trump signalled he could re-engage in the trade pact if it was in his nation's interests.

Since then, Mr Trump has honoured the deal with the latest group of refugees from Manus Island travelling to the USA last month.

Mr Turnbull apparently smoothed over his differences with Trump by meeting him in NY last May.
