Malcolm Turnbull quotes

I mean, does anybody doubt that if you want to succeed, if you want to even have a chance of succeeding in Australia, you need to be able to speak English?feedback

We'll no longer allow 457 visas to be passports to jobs that could and should go to Australians.feedback

We will no longer allow 457 visas to be passports to jobs that could and should go to Australians. We're putting jobs first, and we're putting Australians first.feedback

Australia is the most successful multicultural nation in the world – we are an immigrant nation. But the fact remains, Australian workers must have priority for Australian jobs.feedback

We are an immigration nation, but the fact remains: Australian workers must have priority for Australian jobs.feedback

I recognise there are a lot of people who will try to criticise this on political grounds, and I've heard a bit of that on the ABC already this morning, trying to treat this as a political issue, this is not about politics.feedback

If they fail to meet their requirements, details of their failure will be published. We're going to be transparent about this ... where employers break their obligations they won't be able to get further people in under visas. This is about putting Australians first, making sure Australians can get Australian jobs first.feedback

We will no longer allow 457 visas to be passports to jobs that could and should go to Australians.feedback

Mr Adani noted this is an issue for his development but frankly it's an issue for just about every development in Australia where native title issues are involved. It's an issue for the native title owners as well because plainly you've got to be able to reach agreements to get the development to ensure native title owners, first Australians, get the economic returns and the advancement that they deserve and we all aspire for them to have.feedback

Mr Adani in our discussion simply noted his company expects to make an application to the Northern Australia Infrastructure fund on the basis that we have described several times.feedback

But that has got an independent board, it will assess the application on its merits and it is obviously going to be dependent on there being other funding as well from the private sector from external sources to support the railway line. There is no new news on Adani and the railway project. They are entitled to make an application to the Northern Australia Infrastructure fund, they expect to do so and it will be assessed scrupulously and independently.feedback

We'll certainly be talking about the importance of energy exports to India. India has a massive program of expanding electrification across the country and Australian coal has a very big role to play in that.feedback

As far as the rail link is concerned, if you're asking about Adani's interest in securing funding from the the North Australia Infrastructure [Facility], that's an independent process. It has to go through that independent assessment by the board.feedback

Our commitment and determination is to ensure that when jobs can be done by Australians, they are done by Australians.feedback

This was a calibrated, proportionate and targeted response. It sends a strong message to the Assad regime, and ... has been struck at the very airfield from which the chemical attack was delivered. But we are not at war with the Assad regime and the United States have made it clear that they are not seeking to overthrow the Assad regime.feedback

The retribution has been proportionate and it has been swift. We support the United States in that swift action.feedback

Our response to ice is ruthless interception of trafficking, of smuggling, of dealing. We are working domestically and internationally to catch these merchants of death, these people who traffic in ice, to catch them and intercept their deadly cargoes and we're successful in doing that. At the same time, we're working with compassion with the community and with people who have become subject to ice addiction to help them.feedback

While the full facts are still to be determined, if the Assad regime is responsible for this attack those who approved and deployed these weapons must be held accountable.feedback

This historic visit has ... underscored the growing partnership between our nations and has been a valuable opportunity to discuss our ongoing security and development cooperation.feedback

For those in the path of Cyclone Debbie, please take care and stay safe. If you have received an official evacuation order, you and your family must leave home immediately. Seek shelter with family or friends who are inland or on higher ground. If you decide to shelter at home, make sure you are prepared, have your emergency kit ready and listen to the radio for cyclone updates. Check on your neighbours and vulnerable friends and family and help them get to an evacuation centre.feedback

You're letting children know that it's OK to make fun and humiliate on the basis of people's race and colour. It's preposterous as a society we should be moving away from that. Yet it's 2017, with a PM who is supposed to be very moderate, and we're actually trying to change laws to make it easier for racists to hurt people.feedback

What I'm seeking to do is to ensure we have action from the gas companies. I can say that the gas companies, I have no doubt, are very well aware they operate with the benefit of a social license from the Australian people. And they cannot expect to maintain that if, while billions of dollars of gas are being exported, Australians are left short.feedback

My government will not support one-sided resolutions criticizing Israel of the kind recently adopted by the U.N Security Council and we deplore the boycott campaigns designed to delegitimise the Jewish state. We support an outcome which has two states where Israelis, the Israeli people, the Palestinian people live side-by-side as a result of direct negotiations between them.feedback

A company tax rate has got to really go across all corporations. Distinguishing between one sector and another is not a practical measure. I'm not aware of that ever being done in any other jurisdiction.feedback

He's been very critical of the deal that President Obama did. He clearly wouldn't have done it himself, but we persuaded him to stick with it nonetheless. That was the outcome that we wanted to achieve and that's what I've achieved.feedback

I can assure you the relationship is very strong. The fact we received the assurance that we did, the fact that it was confirmed, the very extensive engagement we have with the new administration underlines the closeness of the alliance. But as Australians know me very well: I stand up for Australia in every forum – public or private.feedback

They must know that the door to Australia is closed to those who seek to come here by boat with a people smuggler, it is closed. Those passengers will never settle in this country.feedback

He is saying that this is not a deal he would have made, but the question is will he honor that commitment? He has already given it. I make Australia's case frankly, powerfully, forthrightly and hopefully persuasively when I deal with other leaders.feedback

These conversations are conducted candidly, frankly, privately. If you see reports of them, I'm not going to add to them.feedback

Losing the United States from the TPP is a big loss, there is no question about that. But we are not about to walk away ... certainly there is potential for China to join the TPP.feedback

We want to have more opportunities with more markets. We already have a China-Australia Free Trade Agreement. Certainly there is the potential for China to join the TPP.feedback

Losing the United States from the TPP is a big loss, there is no question about that. But we are not about to walk away from our commitment to Australian jobs. You have to recognize that his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, has been a longtime advocate for it. The Republican Party in the Congress have been strong supporters of the TPP. It is possible that U.S. policy could change over time on this, as it has done on other trade deals.feedback

It is a shocking tragedy and we grieve and we deeply regret the loss and we deeply regret that the plane has not been found.feedback

It (Christmas) is a time of happiness and joy. These terrorists sought to disrupt it. They have been thwarted. They are in custody. They are no longer a threat to Australians' security.feedback
