 Global Times: Welcome Australia to ease relations with China, but dont expect too much.


During Morrisons tenure as finance minister, he played a key role in deciding to ban Huawei from participating in Australias 5G network construction. Turnbull was forced to resign as prime minister in August because of opposition within the party. Morrison became the new Australian prime minister. He faces the arduous challenge of meeting the general election in May next year.

In the last days of Turnbulls administration, the Australian government has begun to adjust the bad relations between Australia and China, and Morrison, Turnbulls fellow party, has continued this kind of callback. The radical confrontation between Turnbulls government and China has clearly provoked strong dissatisfaction in Australian business circles and may endanger the ruling coalition partys elections.

For China, Morrisons continued easing of relations with China is welcome, and Beijings response should be positive. At the same time, we need to keep a clear understanding that Australia values itself more as an ally of the United States. We need not hold too high expectations for future Sino-Australian relations.

Since the fall of the United Kingdom, the United States has become the general political and security convert of the Australian sovereign state. It is not long before China rises and becomes Australias largest trading partner, which has affected Australias way of survival, but has not changed Australias geopolitical thinking. At a time when economic dependence on China is growing, Australian political elites have complex feelings and unstable attitudes towards China.

China can not force Australia to ask it to relax its alliance with the United States, which we can not do. But we have the right to ask it not to do harm to Chinas interests because it is an ally of the United States. In particular, it can not be a pioneer to cooperate with the United States in suppressing China, and the development of Australian-American relations should not be made at the expense of Sino-Australian relations.

It is unacceptable for China to politicize and secure the investment of Chinese enterprises in Australia, such as prohibiting Huawei from participating in the construction of the 5G network in the country, and to prevent the so-called penetration of China in the past. Some of its performances are more radical than those of the United States, and it is not at all the attitude a country should have towards its largest trading partner and a major country that has never had a festival with it.

During the Turnbull period, he and other senior government officials even continued to add up evil words to China. The degree of arrogance and impoliteness toward China during the Australian period was unbelievable. We advocate that while responding positively to Morrisons posture of moderation, the Chinese government should slow down its interaction with Morrison and keep its words and deeds calm so that the period before the Australian general election in May next year will be a transitional period for the recovery of Sino-Australian relations. In the long run, Australia may be a harder-to-win American ally than Japan, and China does not need to overestimate its relationship with Australia. It is more important to prevent the last round of friction between China and Australia than the possibility of a short-lived friendship. We should neither push Australia into the arms of the United States nor have unrealistic illusions about China-Australia friendship. Stabilizing Sino Australian relations is what we should do. Its not easy, but its worth fighting for. Source: Global Times - World Wide Web. More brilliant, please log on to http://www.huanqiu.com editor in charge of World Wide Web: Ji Ke _b6492
