Doorstop, Sydney

Transcript, E&OE 14 June 2018 JOURNALIST:             What is your reaction to what has happened overnight with Donald Trump? JULIE BISHOP:           In relation to the trade issue with China, this is clearly a bilateral matter between the United States and China, however Australia will continue to advocate for free and open trade and investment.  We believe that any trade disputes should be resolved amicably and if they cannot be resolved bilaterally then the parties should resort to the existing rules – that is through the World Trade Organisation. JOURNALIST:             This sort of tit-for-tat behaviour, though, do you find it concerning? JULIE [...]

The Australian public would expect no less. We have put in place legislation that maintains our national security integrity and we will continue to act in the national interest in ensuring that we get access to high quality telecommunications.

Interview with Leigh Sales, 7.30, ABC

Transcript, E&OE 13 June 2018 LEIGH SALES: Foreign Minister, what’s the Australian Government’s reaction to what’s been signed today? JULIE BISHOP: We most certainly welcome the signing of a declaration between President Trump and Kim Jong-un.

Doorstop interview, Canberra

Transcript, E&OE 13 June 2018 JOURNALIST: Foreign Minister, the deal from yesterday, it seems as though that the more that President Trump expanded yesterday, the wording of the deal seemed to be getting more scarce by the minute. Are you concerned that this really is only a work towards something that North Korea has already committed to do for decades? JULIE BISHOP: One summit was never going to achieve everything that we are seeking from North Korea. The Declaration is very succinct. There are four points to it. The most important aspect though is that North Korea has committed to [...]

Transcript, E&OE 29 April 2018 MONIQUE WRIGHT:            Joining us is now live is Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, who is in Cairns. Good morning, Minister. The Marine Conservation Society says that during the last two summers half of the shallow water corals in the Reef died from overheating, caused by the rising temperatures and partly the result of mines like Adani.

Radio interview with Fifi, Fev and Byron – Fox FM, Melbourne

Transcript, E&OE 23 April 2018 FIFI BOX:                                I thought, Fev, that it would be a good opportunity to speak to somebody who is, really, solely responsible for the diplomatic relations between our country and many others, particularly Indonesia.  So Fev, as a little treat, let's welcome to the show our Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop! Hi Julie. JULIE BISHOP:                       Good morning. How are you all? FIFI BOX:                                Very well, and it is important to point that we are behaving ourselves Julie.

Interview with David Speers – Sky News

Transcript, E&OE 21 April 2018 DAVID SPEERS:         Foreign Minister, thanks so much for joining us. You’ve cautiously welcomed Kim Jong-un’s statement about ending testing of nuclear weapons and long range missiles, but you do want him to go a lot further than that before any sanctions are eased. JULIE BISHOP :           Following North Korea’s statements, I believe we need to see verifiable acts that indicate North Korea will abide by the numerous UN Security Council resolutions that have banned the North Korean nuclear weapons program and the ballistic missile program. DAVID SPEERS:         So that means not just ending testing. It means actually [...]

Doorstop, London

Transcript, E&OE London 21 April 2018 JOURNALIST:             Minister, perhaps first if we could, what is your response to the news out of North Korea?

In the past, North Korea has made promises and then failed to honour them so we need to see verifiable steps that it will abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.
