At the same time, top Canberra politicians are warning of the “trap” of the New Silk Road, Beijing’s most important infrastructure initiative. German Defense Minister Annegret Cramp-Karanbauer (CDU) Corona plans to promote the German and New European Indo-Pacific strategy in Asia, including the Shangri-La Dialogue Security Summit in Singapore in early June.

Michael Bezullo, head of the civil service at the Interior Ministry, warned against “drums of war.”
