"The challenges we now face are immense," Joyce said in an update to the Australian stock exchange.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Thursday that China's recent announcement of an air defense identification zone over the East China Sea had caused apprehension in the region, and that he was firm about the U.S. stance on the move during talks in Beijing.
