Sydney (AP / AFP) – China is waging an “economic war” against Australia as it imposes a number of trade sanctions. US Ambassador to the Asia-Pacific Region According to top diplomat Kurt Campbell, China is trying to “bring Australia to its knees”.
China has recently imposed a series of restrictions on Australian products such as agricultural products, commodities and wine and food due to the deteriorating political relationship. One reason for this is the comments made by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison that he would like independent research on the origin of the corona virus. Other factors, such as the Australian ban on 5G equipment from Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, also play a role in the conflict.
Speaking to a company in Sydney, Campbell said China wants to “break” Australia through those sanctions. He argues that Beijing is becoming increasingly hostile and is determined to impose its will abroad. Under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, China is becoming more resilient, more prepared to take risks and taking measures that other countries consider compelling, Campbell said.
