The Australian newspaper reported that at the invitation of Australia, China will participate in the first Australian-sponsored joint naval exercise of Kakadu. Payne, Australia's defense minister, confirmed in July 31st that he had sent an invitation to China. It is said that inviting China to a military exercise may be a "diplomatic breakthrough" in Australia and China under the opposition of the "foreign influence act" and the South China Sea issue.

The Australian newspaper, the Australian newspaper, said the joint military performance of the "card" sea was the largest naval exercise sponsored by Australia. In 2016, thousands of soldiers from nearly 20 Asia Pacific countries participated, and China participated as an observer in the exercise.

Graham, a defense expert of Australia's famous Chi - Chi Institute, told the Australian Financial commentary 31, which said that despite the tense diplomatic relations between Australia and China, both sides realized the importance of maintaining a good military relationship.
