Original title: Australia moves to stir up yellow Chinese enterprises in South Tai Island
Australia, which has been hostile to China recently, is now stirring up the cable contract between HUAWEI and the South Pacific island country Solomon islands.
Today, Australia announced that it would contribute to the construction of a new telecommunications cable in the Solomon islands, thus officially pushing HUAWEI out of China.
According to the Lianhe Zaobao today, Australia announced Wednesday that it would help build a new cable from Sydney to the Solomon islands and squeeze HUAWEI out of the office. The article says Australia is now competing against China in the South Pacific, hoping to maintain its diplomatic influence in the region.
Bloomberg reported that Australian Prime Minister Turnbull said the high speed cable would extend from the east coast of Australia to Honiara in Papua, New Guinea, and then to the remote provinces of the Solomon islands. Previously, foreign media reports said Australia was preparing to stop HUAWEI Ocean Network Ltd. from laying submarine optical cables with a total length of more than 4000 kilometers from Sydney to the Solomon islands.
Solomon, the Prime Minister of the Solomon islands, told reporters that the government was initially considering a HUAWEI to build the optical cable, but because of Australia's concerns, it reconsidered the Chinese company's participation. Australia banned HUAWEI from bidding for the national broadband network contract in 2012 on the grounds of security concerns.
