With Australia's federal election to be held this Saturday, Allan and Darren conduct a quick discussion of the role foreign policy has played over the past month during the campaign, and what we can learn regardless of who will form government. Then, to finish, eyebrows are raised in response to reporting detailing secret conversations between very senior Australian and US national security officials regarding AUKUS and the US' need for bipartisan support for the deal within Australia.   We thank Annabel Howard for research and audio editing and Rory Stenning for composing our theme music.

Emmanuel Macron : Nhà hòa giải quốc tế, tham vọng bất thành ?

TẠP CHÍ TIÊU ĐIỂM

Ngày 10/04/2022, cử tri Pháp được mời gọi tham gia cuộc bỏ phiếu vòng một bầu chọn tổng thống mới, trong bối cảnh dịch bệnh Covid-19 vẫn hoành hành và cuộc chiến Ukraina do Nga tiến hành đang diễn ra khốc liệt. Đây cũng là dịp để nhìn lại đường lối đối ngoại của tổng thống sắp mãn nhiệm. Trong cái nhìn tương đối khắt khe, kênh truyền hình quốc tế France 24 đánh giá, trong suốt 5 năm nhiệm kỳ, nguyên thủ Pháp nỗ lực hành động như một nhà hòa giải, nhưng đa phần thất bại. Hâm nóng quan hệ với Nga : « Công dã tràng » ? Cho đến cuối nhiệm kỳ, Emmanuel Macron đã cố gắng thể hiện vai trò mà ông tự gán cho mình ngay từ năm 2017 : Nhà trung gian hòa giải hàng đầu. Bằng chứng mới nhất là cố gắng sử dụng hết mọi phương tiện ngoại giao để tránh việc Nga xâm lược Ukraina. Từ thường xuyên gọi điện thoại cho đến việc đích thân đến Matxcơva (07/02/2022) gặp gỡ tổng thống Nga Vladimir Putin, nhằm kêu gọi hạ nhiệt căng thẳng. Mục tiêu đó của ông Macron có lúc tưởng chừng đã đạt được khi thông báo một cuộc gặp có thể giữa chủ nhân điện Kremlin và chủ nhân Nhà Trắng, Joe Biden. Nhưng rủi thay, chưa đầy hai tuần sau đó, Vldimir Putin tuyên bố công nhận hai nước Cộng hòa ly khai vùng Donbass, trước khi ra lệnh mở « chiến dịch quân sự đặc biệt » xâm chiếm Ukraina ngày 24/02/2022. Thất bại ngoại giao này là đòn thứ hai liên tiếp của Emmanuel Macron, khi trước đó vài hôm, ông gặp phải một thất vọng khác : Thông báo ngày 17/02 cho triệt thoái quân Pháp khỏi Mali, khu vực mà Pháp dấn thân từ 9 năm qua trong cuộc chiến chống thánh chiến trong toàn vùng Sahel. Hai vố đau này chưa thể đại diện cho mọi hành động ngoại giao mà tổng thống Pháp tiến hành từ 5 năm qua, nhưng chúng biểu tượng cho sự bất lực của nước Pháp trên trường quốc tế. Emmanuel Macron, mỗi khi có cơ hội, đều tìm cách nắm lấy để mang lại cho nước Pháp một vai trò, một tiếng nói có trọng lượng hơn.   Nỗ lực này đã được ông thể hiện rõ ngay trong những ngày đầu nhiệm kỳ trong mối quan hệ với Nga. Ngày 29/05/2017, chỉ hai tuần sau khi đặt chân vào điện Elysée, nguyên thủ Pháp đã long trọng đón tiếp đồng nhiệm Nga Vladimir Putin tại cung điện Versailles, để rồi hai năm sau đó, một cuộc gặp khác tại Brégançon vào tháng 8/2019, trong một bầu không khí thân mật hơn. Đối với một số truyền thông Pháp, cuộc xâm lăng Ukraina do Nga tiến hành là một thất bại hoàn toàn cho « mối quan hệ đặc biệt » với Nga của ông Macron. Đâu là nguyên nhân ? Về điểm này, nhà báo Isabelle Lasserre1, trợ lý tổng biên tập ban Quốc tế, nhật báo Le Figaro điểm ra hai sai lầm của tổng thống Pháp. « Sai lầm đầu tiên trong chính sách với Nga là đã hành động một mình. Ông ấy đã không đến gặp tất cả các nước Đông – Trung Âu để nói với họ rằng "chúng tôi cần sưởi ấm lại quan hệ với Nga, nhưng không phải để chống lại quý vị". Bởi vì rõ ràng Emmanuel Macron không có lấy một chính sách nào mềm yếu hơn như của bà Angela Merkel. Ông ấy luôn ủng hộ các biện pháp trừng phạt. Sai lầm thứ hai của Macron là đã xem thường lập trường của Quai d'Orsay (tức bộ Ngoại Giao) và các nhà ngoại giao. Những người này đã cảnh báo ông rằng "hâm nóng quan hệ với Vladimir Putin, chúng ta đã thử làm từ 20 năm qua. Mỗi lần như thế, chúng ta đều đi vào ngõ cụt. Đó không phải là cách để xử lý vấn đề". » (France Culture ngày 11/03/2022) Emmanuel Macron : « Đệ tử » của chủ nghĩa đa phương ? Cách tiếp cận này cũng được chủ nhân điện Elysée áp dụng cùng một kiểu trong mối quan hệ với cựu tổng thống Mỹ. Donald Trump cùng Đệ Nhất phu nhân là khách mời danh dự cho lễ diễu binh mừng quốc khánh Pháp 14/7/2017 và bữa dạ tiệc sang trọng trên tháp Eiffel. Đáp trả thịnh tình, cựu chủ nhân Nhà Trắng tiếp đón Macron cùng phu nhân ở Washington tháng 4/2018. Nhưng tất cả những điều đó cũng không ngăn cản được chính quyền Trump rút nước Mỹ ra khỏi thỏa thuận khí hậu Paris và hạt nhân Iran. Theo France 24, Emmanuel Macron ý thức được rằng nước Pháp đang thụt lùi trên trường quốc tế nên cũng muốn tận dụng ngay từ ngày đầu nhiệm kỳ sự mờ nhạt của Vương Quốc Anh, quá bận rộn với cuộc Brexit, và chính sách co cụm của đồng minh Mỹ, để thể hiện vai trò đi đầu trong chủ nghĩa đa phương. Ông liên tục có những bài phát biểu « hoa mỹ » như « Make Our Planet Great Again » vào tháng 6/2017 tại Đại Hội Đồng Liên Hiệp Quốc, tháng 12/2017 tại One Planet Summit ở Paris hay như thượng đỉnh G7 tại Biarritz tháng 8/2019. Liệu người ta có thể khẳng định nhiệm kỳ của ông Macron được đánh dấu với chủ nghĩa đa phương ? Ông Michel Duclos, cựu đại sứ Pháp ở Syria, cố vấn đặc biệt cho Viện Montaigne không chắc rằng đây là một thành công. « Tôi nghĩ là ở đây có một sự hiểu nhầm giữa ông Macron với người dân Pháp, bởi vì, đúng là ông ấy có mang lại cho chủ nghĩa đa phương một phong cách mới gắn kết các quỹ lớn, các đại tập đoàn, các tác nhân thuộc Nhà nước với những lý lẽ lớn như nạn phá rừng ở châu Phi, ở Brazil hoặc như các quy định về Internet. Nhưng đó là những điều khó làm cho công luận hiểu và nhất là ông Macron lại không trang bị cho mình những công cụ để giải thích hành động này với đồng bào. Đây là điều đáng tiếc vì lẽ ra chúng có thể sẽ là một điểm tích cực cho hành động của ông. » (IRIS ngày 01/12/2021) Điều nghịch lý là một mặt tổng thống Pháp kêu gọi một sự hợp tác đa phương, nhưng mặt khác đôi lúc ông hành động đơn độc, không thông báo hay tham vấn với các đối tác châu Âu, một hình thức « chủ nghĩa đơn phương » theo kiểu Pháp như đánh giá của ông Pascal Boniface, giám đốc Viện Quan Hệ Quốc Tế và Chiến Lược (IRIS). Khi tuyên bố « NATO chết não », nguyên thủ Pháp cũng không ngần ngại có những phát biểu gây sốc cho các đối tác, đồng minh truyền thống. Đối với nhà cựu ngoại giao Pháp, Michel Duclos, đây là điểm yếu đáng chú ý của nguyên thủ Pháp. Cách thức tiếp cận này đã hạn chế tham vọng lớn nhất của Emmanuel Macron : Xây dựng một chiến lược tự chủ cho Liên Hiệp Châu Âu với một ngân sách chung cho toàn khu vực đồng euro, đồng nhất thuế khóa và chính sách xã hội, và nhất là một nền quốc phòng chung. Ông giải thích : « Tổng thống Macron đương nhiên là một người có tầm nhìn châu Âu rộng lớn. Ông muốn có một châu Âu hùng mạnh, một châu Âu đoàn kết nhưng cùng lúc ông lại hành động đơn phương gần như là có hệ thống về các hồ sơ như Libya, Syria, thậm chí là cả hồ sơ Iran, Liban… Ông ấy liên tục có những sáng kiến mà không tham vấn ai như về Nga và NATO. Cảm giác của tôi là điều đó đã làm suy yếu thông điệp của ông về một châu Âu đoàn kết, trong chừng mực nào đó điều này đã gia tăng mối hoài nghi ở các đối tác đối với Pháp. » (IRIS ngày 01/12/2021) AUKUS : Chênh lệch về tầm nhìn mối họa Trung Quốc ? Cuối cùng, một hồ sơ khác không kém phần quan trọng góp phần làm lu mờ đường hướng ngoại giao của tổng thống Macron : Sự ra đời liên minh quân sự AUKUS – Anh, Mỹ và Úc, khiến Pháp bị vuột mất hợp đồng bán tầu ngầm cho Canberra, trị giá hàng tỷ đô la. Một cú tát như trời giáng, một đòn « sỉ nhục » mà Mỹ giành cho Pháp, theo như nhận định từ nhiều nhà quan sát. Tổng thống Pháp cũng bị chỉ trích mạnh mẽ là đã có thái độ không mấy gì cứng rắn trước hành động này của đồng nhiệm Biden cũng như là sự « phản bội » của Mỹ đối với đồng minh Pháp. Ông Alain Richard, cựu bộ trưởng Quốc Phòng và là thượng nghị sĩ Pháp, trước hết nhắc lại đường hướng đối ngoại của Pháp đối với Mỹ trước sau như một, vẫn luôn tuân thủ cách tiếp cận theo tinh thần của tướng De Gaulle và cố tổng thống Mitterand. Điểm cốt lõi trong cuộc tranh chấp này là sự chênh lệch lớn về cách diễn giải mối đe dọa Trung Quốc trong khu vực Ấn Độ - Thái Bình Dương. « Theo cách tiếp cận này, nước Pháp, đồng minh của Mỹ, hội nhập hoàn toàn trong phe phương Tây khi có các cuộc xung đột nhưng đồng thời cũng quan tâm đến việc tự chủ chiến lược và đối thoại với các thế lực địa chính trị khác. Tôi cho rằng không có lý do gì chúng ta phải thay đổi bởi vì vấn đề là cuộc tranh cãi có liên quan đến AUKUS lại là một cuộc tranh cãi về cách đánh giá tình hình khu vực. Ở đây tôi xin lưu ý là thuật ngữ Ấn Độ - Thái Bình Dương được sáng tạo đơn giản chỉ vì có mối nguy hiểm Trung Quốc, đây là một cách nói bóng bẩy thông thường trên phương diện địa chính trị, để nói rằng có một vấn đề mới nảy sinh đang bao phủ toàn bộ vùng địa lý mà người ta chưa rõ về vị thế chiến lược của Trung Quốc. Đó là mức độ đe dọa mà Trung Quốc có thể gây ra. Chính ở điểm này mà có một sự xung khắc giữa tầm nhìn Pháp, một tầm nhìn của cách đây nhiều năm và tầm nhìn của Mỹ. » (IRIS 24/11/2021) Emmannuel Macron : Quai d'Orsay, cỗ máy ngoại giao già cỗi ? Khi điểm lại những thất bại đã qua, người ta tự hỏi phải chăng tuổi đời còn trẻ, không xuất thân từ tầng lớp chính trị gia, có là những yếu tố hạn chế tầm nhìn của nguyên thủ Pháp dẫn đến những thất bại nêu trên ? Trái với những người tiền nhiệm, Emmanuel Macron có phương cách hành động theo cái cách mà ông Michel Duclos gọi là « Đoạn tuyệt thực tế », nghĩa là « cùng lúc tính đến yếu tố thực tế nhưng đồng thời thay đổi chúng, cần phải phá vỡ thực tế đó khi dựa vào các thực tiễn. » Một cách tiếp cận mà nhà cựu ngoại giao Pháp không ngần ngại chỉ trích là có nguy cơ bị phản đòn mà hồ sơ Nga hay Aukus là một ví dụ điển hình. Chính từ cách nhìn này mà nguyên thủ Pháp đã bỏ ngoài tai tiếng nói của giới ngoại giao, đi ngược cách thức vận hành so với Quai d'Orsay, bị đánh giá quá chậm chạp, chỉ đưa ra kết quả sau một quá trình tìm kiếm đồng thuận dài hơi đôi khi không mấy gì phù hợp. Trong một thế giới ngày càng xuất hiện nhiều nhà độc tài mang nặng tư tưởng chủ nghĩa xét lại, ông Macron cho rằng cần phải có khả năng hành động nhanh hơn chống lại những mối đe dọa nhắm vào các giá trị của châu Âu, nhưng thực tế đôi khi lại không theo ý ông muốn. Dù vậy, bà Sylvie Bermann, cựu đại sứ Pháp tại Trung Quốc, Anh và Nga, đưa ra một cái nhìn khoan dung hơn về đường lối đối ngoại của ông Macron trong suốt nhiệm kỳ qua. « Nhìn chung, Emmanuel Macron là một trong số hiếm hoi các nguyên thủ Pháp gần đây có một tầm nhìn địa chính trị trên thế giới. Ông ấy biết rõ là ông muốn đi đến đâu. Quả thực là ông Macron muốn có một châu Âu hùng mạnh để có thể đối phó với những tính toàn từ Trung Quốc, thậm chí là Mỹ và Nga tại châu lục (…) Liên quan đến Nga, Emmanuel Macron đã có lý khi muốn thiết lập mối quan hệ này và hiện nay, ông là một trong số hiếm hoi các đối tác cuối cùng được ông Putin chấp nhận. » (France Culture 11/03/2022)

In this episode of the ChinaPower Podcast, Dr. Charles Edel joins us to unpack the relationship between Australia and China. Dr. Edel begins by navigating key moments of closeness and tension in the China-Australia relationship. In terms of policies towards China, he highlights the moderate approach of the Australian business community versus the more forward-leaning approach from the Australian government and the public. He notes that when faced with great economic pressure, “Australian businesses were able to diversify and find other markets quickly”. Dr. Edel also examines Australia's participation in AUKUS and the Quad. He explains that Australia believes it needs to build up power projection capabilities, especially as China increases its presence in the Indo-Pacific. He adds that Australia's response to Chinese coercion demonstrates to China that not all countries will fold to its pressure. Additionally, he explains that China's closeness to Russia amid the invasion of Ukraine propels an overarching negative sentiment towards China and prompts the Australian government to consider potential responses if China attacks Taiwan. Lastly, Dr. Edel asserts that despite the current downward trend in China-Australia relations, the relationship will eventually stabilize. Charles Edel is the inaugural Australia Chair and a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He previously taught at the University of Sydney, where he was also a senior fellow at the United States Studies Centre. Prior to that, Dr. Edel was a professor of strategy and policy at the U.S. Naval War College and served on the U.S. secretary of state's Policy Planning Staff from 2015 to 2017. In that role, he advised the secretary of state on political and security issues in the Indo-Pacific region.

How nuclear non-proliferation issues are addressed by these three countries is not the sole test of AUKUS, but it will form an important part of managing its future trajectory and global reception.

As Russia masses troops on the Ukrainian border and China ramps up its military presence in the South China Sea and South East Asia, the development of new Pacific and global alliances such as the quad and AUKUS creates tensions amongst the world superpowers, it seems like a new cold war is on the horizon. But do rising tensions really mean that the West faces "New Cold Wars"? Maybe the movies can tell us. We discuss what films like Wolf Warrior, Viking, and of course Dr. Strangelove mean for the state of international affairs. Does Xi Jinping's weaponisation of Wolf Warrior II presage a more global Chinese military adventurism? Does Vladimir Putin's endorsement of Viking telegraph his intention to invade Ukraine? And what do our own Cold War movies tell us about ourselves? Join us on YouTube at 12.30pm, Wednesday 23 February, as we find out.

Ahead of the election, Scott Morrison is trying to wedge Labor on national security generally and China in particular. Opposition defence spokesman Brendan O'Connor tells this podcast: “National security is the the greatest priority of any federal government in order to protect the interests of the country and citizens. But we should not be politicising national security for base political purposes and that's been on display now for certainly the last couple of weeks.” “It is a critical issue and will always be a critical issue, but it shouldn't be debased in the manner in which Scott Morrison has chosen to do so recently.” On China, O'Connor indicates the difference under a Labor government would be one of tone rather than substance.   “We need to use temperate language in order to maintain peace and stability in the region. That's not for a moment to suggest we do not call out acts of aggression or coercion.” (The Essential poll, published on Tuesday, asked which party respondents would trust to build a relationship with China in Australia's best interests. It found 37% favoured Labor, 28% nominated the Coalition and 34% were unsure.) O'Connor describes Russian's President Putin's move on Ukraine – recognising two breakaway regions and deploying forces for “peacekeeping” – as “a blatant fundamental breach of international law”. “Our position therefore has to be that we engage with our friends, particularly the NATO states and the United States, as to what best we can do to reduce the likelihood of any invasion by Russia of the Ukraine.” O'Connor says Labor has concerns about a possible Australian defence capability gap between the current Collins class submarines and the delivery of the first submarine under AUKUS. But how a Labor administration would deal with that gap would depend on being comprehensively briefed in government on options.

Defence Minister Peter Dutton says he would like to see more American combat capability based in Australia. Speaking on the “Politics with Michelle Grattan” podcast, Dutton says: “I'd be very open to it. I would be very, very happy to have that discussion with the US if they saw a strategic advantage in doing so.” He says there is significant visiting by US airforce, navy and army forces (together with the current marine rotation). “And if that is accompanied by, or there's a subsequent decision to base further numbers, we'd be very happy to have that discussion with the US – or with the UK, for that matter.” Last September's AUSMIN talks committed “to significantly advance Australia-United States force posture cooperation”. Dutton also reiterates he's working on the acceleration of the timetable for the nuclear-powered submarines, a centrepiece of last year's AUKUS agreement between Australia, the US and Britain. “I can assure you, the 20 year timeline is nonsense. I believe that we will be able to acquire well before that”. Discussions with the US and UK have been “very productive” and “I'll have more to say on that in due course once the discussions continue”. “Everything [is] on the table with the US and the UK at the moment, and we will achieve capability well ahead of what the critics are pointing out at the moment.” “I've been driving the process, receiving weekly updates, engaging with our counterparts. And this has momentum. It has buy-in from the US and the UK. It has an urgency because of the way in which the Chinese government is positioning in the Indo-Pacific”. Asked about criticism that his language on China is too belligerent, Dutton says, “I do believe that China is on a pathway of aggression, particularly toward Taiwan, and I want to be part of what I think is a majority view around the world to stop that from taking place. "I want China to continue to grow economically. I want to see people lifted out of poverty, but I don't want to see a clash, particularly between great powers. And I think again, we're better off to be frank in our assessments and to argue from a position of strength, not weakness, because otherwise, we will find ourselves in conflict in the Indo-Pacific, and that's not what anybody wants.” Dutton doesn't step back from his description of Russian President Vladimir Putin as an ageing dictator who is becoming more and more irrational. “People only need to look at his track record and concerning human rights abuses in Russia. There's no sense when we're dealing with a bully of any nature, believing that if we just close our ears and our mouth, that somehow the bully will become a good person.”
