‘We fight for what is good and right’: Dutton

Defence Minister Peter Dutton has thanked the serving men and women of the Australian Defence Force who are in Afghanistan and Kabul right now.

"The stories of bravery will become obvious to Australians over the coming days and weeks," Mr Dutton said during Question Time on Monday.

He also said, "we are a better country for the way in which we have adhered, once again, to our values and to our beliefs".

"We stand proudly with the United States and our other allies today and everyday into the future because we fight for what is good and what is right and that is what is demanded of our country."
