On May 24th, the Prime Minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese, has called on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to remove trade sanctions, he told reporters after attending the Quad summit in Tokyo with the U.S. president Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Indian Prime Minister Modi.

The CCP has lashed out with extreme retaliation as former Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison demanded investigations into the origin of COVID-19, resulting in a deteriorating relationship between the two countries.  China has imposed high tariffs on most imports of Australian goods, including barley, wine, seafood, coal, iron ore, etc.  The CCP has cut off diplomatic contact with Australia as Chinese senior officials refused to answer phone calls from Australian officials.

The Western world is finally waking up to the growing threats posed by the CCP.  The United States as the world leader is aligning with other western countries to prevent CCP from expanding its global influence while increasing pressure on the CCP.

The new Prime Minister Albanese specifically referred to a list of 14 grievances against the Australian Government provided by the CCP in Nov of 2020.  The list includes decisions to ban Huawei from 5G networks, “spearheading a crusade” in multilateral forums on China’s affairs in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Xinjiang, revocation of visas for Chinese scholars, etc.  “If you treat China as your enemy, China will be your enemy,” the CCP threatened Australia.

“These demands from China are totally inappropriate, and we completely reject them,” Albanese said on Tuesday.  “We will define our own values and we will define the future direction of Australia.”
