Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said it was important that Beijing uses its growing influence in international affairs responsibly, adding that both Washington and Canberra wanted to engage the country constructively. "The Americans share our view that, with the rise of China, we don't want to pursue a policy of containment," Downer told Australian Broadcasting Corp. television.
