Australia and the United States have an ‘overlap of interests’: John Blaxland

ANU Strategic and Defence Studies Centre’s Professor John Blaxland says the interests of Australia "overlap" with those of the United States.

"Have for a long time," he told Sky News host Catherine McGregor.

"Not completely, there’s always been points of variation.

"But overwhelmingly it is a strong correlation that we need to be looking to complement."
