The Australian Minister of Defense mocked the comments of a senior Chinese diplomat as “stupid” and “funny”, who referred to Canberra’s trilateral nuclear-powered submarine agreement with the United States and Britain as a threat to peace.
In a television interview on Friday, Peter Dutton said that the acting Chinese ambassador Wang Xining is “Maybe reading the script of the Communist Party” When he warned that Australia would become “Naughty guy” If it purchases stealth warships through the AUKUS transaction.
After ending his former ambassador’s term last month, China’s top representative to the country, Wang, told the Guardian on Thursday that Australia would be labeled “Knife Bearer” Instead of one “Guardian of Peace.” He said that the Australian public “Should be more worried” Regarding the impact of their country’s security agreements with the United Kingdom and the United States.
Technically speaking, Australia has zero nuclear capacity, which will ensure that you will not run into trouble or accidents. If something happens, are the politicians ready to say sorry to the people in Melbourne and Adelaide?
However, Dutton “Fired” Comment and retort “Most Australians [would] see through [their] Non-productive nature. “
“We haven’t seen it on any other ambassador in Australia. It’s quite remarkable,” The minister told the 9th website and added “This Diplomacy” I have seen it in other parts of the world.
“These provocative and comical remarks—it’s so stupid. It’s funny,” He added.
In September, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced an agreement to obtain at least eight nuclear-powered ships as part of his new defense alliance.The agreement angered not only China but also France, which claimed that it had “Stabbed in the back” After Canberra unilaterally canceled its multi-billion dollar diesel-electric submarine contract with Paris.
Last weekend, Dutton angered Beijing, saying that he could not imagine how Australia would hesitate to support the United States if there was an armed conflict with China in Taiwan. According to its “One China” policy, Beijing promised to unify Taiwan with the mainland.
Wang warned Australian politicians not to do anything on Thursday “Destroy our relationship.”
