At the beginning, Australia was very arrogant, relying on the backing of the United States, it continued to provoke China on the bottom line! Especially on the issue of the Taiwan Strait, Australia once said that as long as the United States sends troops, Australia will send troops to the Taiwan Strait with the US military. However, this arrogant Australia is no longer there. Even if it was smashed by the United States with a nuclear submarine, Australia still looks “too young” at the beginning, and it really said the wrong thing and did the wrong thing!
After the United States agreed to build three nuclear submarines for Australia, the Australian Defense Minister was asked whether Australia had made any commitments to the United States in obtaining these three nuclear submarines, such as supporting the United States on the Taiwan Strait issue and stepping in the footsteps of the United States to intervene When confronting China in the Taiwan Strait, the Australian Defense Minister quickly explained that there is absolutely no such thing! Australia did not make a similar commitment in the “Ocus” agreement, nor did it have the idea of sending troops to the Taiwan Strait with the US military.
This can be regarded as Australia’s clear statement on the Taiwan Strait issue. Whether or not to send troops to the Taiwan Strait with the US military is no longer, or has never been, Australia’s plan. And Australia’s statement has undoubtedly played a very good role in promoting the currently recovering Sino-Australian relations, preventing Sino-Australian relations from touching key issues in China because of the “Ocus” agreement. Get nervous again!
However, although Australia emphasized that the “Ocus” agreement does not involve Australia’s position on the Taiwan Strait issue, it does not mean that Australia has made any commitments to the United States. However, such an agreement, no matter how beautifully decorated the United States is, for the peace and stability of the Indo-Pacific region, it will be difficult to conceal the true intention of the United States to further put pressure on China! It is also because of this that the “Ocus” agreement has caused great dissatisfaction in Australia.
The former Australian Prime Minister accused the “Ocus” agreement as the worst deal, which is dangerous for Australia! Australian experts also emphasized that Australia not only paid money to the United States, but also made a commitment to the United States to a certain extent, and will participate more in the confrontation between the United States and China in the Indo-Pacific. As far as Australia is concerned, Australia cannot get rid of the United States. Without the support of the United States, it is impossible for any political party leader to be in power for a long time!
However, Australia is also inseparable from China! Australia’s current economic predicament can only be found in China, and only the resumption of economic and trade cooperation with China can help Australia get rid of its economic predicament. It is precisely because of this that Australia has such a big controversy over the “Ocus” agreement in Australia, and accused the Australian government of embracing American hegemony and losing its way in independently integrating into the Indo-Pacific!
Australia can cause such a big controversy because of the “Ocus” agreement. The Australian defense minister is even more concerned about the purchase of American nuclear submarines. Does it mean that he has made a promise to the United States and actively explained to the outside world? It seems that Australia I really woke up! But Australia can wake up, it is really not Australia that wakes up, but is completely awakened.
Australia has always been very clear about how important the Chinese market is to Australia. Why does Australia only now know that the Chinese market cannot be lost? Australia’s economic development cannot be separated from China? That’s because China has made Australia feel the consequences of losing the Chinese market. If it hadn’t been for that move, would Australia have come to its senses? If it hadn’t been for that move, would Australia have stood up to explain the Taiwan Strait issue because it was worried about China’s misunderstanding.
