From Time:

Australian Labor leader Kevin Rudd celebrates his victory in the federal elections with supporters in his hometown of Brisbane on November 24.

Australia under Labor will remain a “rock solid” friend of the U.S., Rudd has said, but reserve the right to act “independently.” Rudd, who spent eight years as a diplomat in Beijing, has criticized China’s human-rights record but appears more sympathetic to the People’s Republic than Howard. Rudd rejected the Howard government support of a potential alliance between the U.S., Australia, Japan and India, saying China would feel encircled.
