Australia will call home all of its overseas ambassadors for a meeting, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Wednesday, as it reshapes its foreign policy to balance ties with long-time ally the United States and China, its largest trading partner."At a time of significant global uncertainty, it is vital that Australia harness the experience and intellect of our most senior diplomats," Bishop said in a statement.She said the meeting later this month would focus on a broad reset of Australia's approach to international relations and trade.Australia's relations with China have been strained recently by a pushback against foreign investment by an increasingly conservative parliament in Canberra.Kim Beazley, Australia's former ambassador to the United States and a former leader of the opposition Labor Party, said the U.S. relationship was vital, not only because of their long-standing strategic alliance but also because of the amount of investment ploughed into Australia.
