‘Aggressive act’: Chinese spy ship hugging the ‘unprecedented’ WA coast

Defense Minister Peter Dutton said a Chinese warship from the PLA intelligence collection that tracing off the coast of WA is an “aggressive act” as it sails within Australia’s exclusive economic zone.

“I think specifically why it got so far south – because coming south of Exmouth is unprecedented and hugging the coast the way it came and heading north,” Dutton said.
