Bob Hawke's tears for the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre ushered in a new sympathy for refugees in Australia. Following this famous speech, he made a unilateral promise, without consulting his cabinet, to offer asylum to thousands of Chinese students.

Even though I never had the chance to serve with him, I always liked and admired Bob Hawke for his progressive record and great sense of humor. My thoughts are with his family and the people of Australia.

Bob Hawke is a giant of Australian politics. He and Paul Keating internationalised the Australian economy. He established APEC and radically deepened Australia’s engagement with Asia. He established Medicare. Together with Therese and the entire nation, I mourn his passing.
