The incoming leader, Peng Pao, wants Harris to fill the vacancy as soon as possible. He made the Pacific unpeaceful The White House did not respond immediately to the news. The source said Harris had planned to retire after the end of this years term, but he had already accepted the job as ambassador to Australia, mainly because he had a lot of experience in dealing with us Australia relations. However, he had less experience in dealing with South Korea and limited diplomatic contact with the DPRK.

In October 2013, he took over the command of the US Pacific Fleet. Two years later, he was promoted to commander of the US Pacific Command and the US military in the Pacific. The Washington Post said he was a highly respected naval officer and trusted by bipartisan senators, but it would still take some time to confirm his position.

Moreover, compared with the potential candidate, Vader, Harriss hawkish label is more likely to win the support of the two parties in Congress. On the issue of China, his position is very tough, and it is likely to shake the banner of the Trump administrations India - Tai strategy, which is the hub of Japan, the U. S. and Australia, and the attempt to reconstruct the regional security order. In January this year, the white house came to give up the nomination of Che Weide as ambassador to South Korea. It is widely believed that this is because the former government official and widely respected scholars have been deeply worried about the US military plan to make the DPRK bluding. Thus, what kind of ambassadors will be favored by the White House? Do you hurt the feelings of the United States and Australia? In an interview with Sky News on Wednesday, Australian Foreign Minister Bishop said U.S. Secretary of State Secretary of state Sullivan had told him that Harris would not be the ambassador to Australia.
