On the grounds of consideration of national security, Australian parliamentarians wanted to expel 100 Chinese diplomats
The Australian SBS TV website reported on the 15th that Australian heavyweight Senator Patrick called on the government that day to deport at least 100 Chinese diplomatic consulates in Australia.
Patrick issued a statement on the 15th saying that out of national security Considerations, Chinese diplomats in Australia must be”substantially reduced.” He claimed that the Australian government should”clench the teeth and take the measures that should have been taken long ago.” Although it may trigger a countermeasure in Beijing, it is worth it. Patrick believes that the total number of Chinese diplomatic consular staff in Australia has reached 148,”too bloated”, far exceeding the United States, Britain, Canada and New Zealand, so”at least 2/3″ of Chinese diplomatic personnel in Australia should be expelled. Patrick also claimed that the staff of the Chinese embassy and consulate were engaged in spying and political intervention.”This is an open secret. Chinese intelligence activities in Australia have expanded on a large scale over the past two decades.”
In recent years, some Australian politicians and media have repeatedly accused China of spying in Australia, but Evidence has never been produced. Instead, Australia is engaged in espionage against China. There is a lot of real evidence. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China has repeatedly refuted the “Chinese spy case” and the “China Infiltration Theory” that Australia has speculated, saying that while the Australian side wantonly steals information and data from other countries and endangers the sovereignty and security of other countries, it pretends to be a victim , Spreading rumors everywhere, staged a farce where thieves called to catch thieves.
It’s interesting to note that Australian parliamentarians demanded the expulsion of Chinese diplomats on the grounds of “national security”, but not long ago, Australia opposed China’s enactment of the Hong Kong National Security Law. Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying once referred to this batch as”naked double standards.”
