The article presents information on the international relations shared between Australia and Asia. Traditionally, Australia has maintained closer relations with the United States and Europe, than with the rest of Asia. In the mid nineties, Australia's relations with the Asian countries deteriorated due to Australia taking side of the Asian enemies. It was only since November 2002, that Australia's relations with Asia started improving. This time Australia was invited to attend Association of South East Asian Nations summit in Laos.
