Foreign Minister Marise Payne defends Australia's Strait of Hormuz deployment

Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne has defended the Morrison government's decision to send Australian troops to a US-led military mission in the Middle East. Australia's foreign minister insists it is "absolutely" in the national interest to send troops to defend oil tankers in the Middle East. Military experts and academics have questioned the wisdom of signing up to the US-led mission in the Persian Gulf, and raised concerns about "mission creep". But Marise Payne has defended the decision to deploy a plane, frigate, and Australian personnel to the Strait of Hormuz. Senator Payne argued the military operation will help de-escalate tensions in the region, particularly in relation to Iran, and ensure crucial shipping lanes remain open. "Endeavouring to support a de-escalation process in this particular maritime security construct is, I think, an appropriate and reasonable thing for Australia to do," she told the ABC's Insiders program on Sunday.
