Statement: MV-28B Osprey Crash

The Opposition shares our sorrow at the news of the crashed United States Marine Corps Osprey MV-22B today in Australian waters. 


We mourn the loss of the three US Marines, and send our condolences to their families and colleagues. We hope and pray for a speedy recovery for those injured. 


This tragic accident remind us of our bonds with the United States, forged through sacrifice, in peace and war. 


We have an ongoing mission in preparing for the strategic challeges ahead, including navigating the tough geography of the Indo-Pacific region. 


We will continue to train hard together as we defend our sovereignty, values and common interests.
