"Australia has several good reasons not to draw attention to the matter either"
what are they ?
Exports and investment. The current government is extremely pro-coal and CSG, and is also desperate to reverse a slide in property prices in major cities. China is by far the largest buyer of Australian minerals, and is also a huge investor in the Australian property market.

You are wrong on property prices, with interest rates at historic low, it is stoking a property price bubble on landed houses. As for apartments, there maybe a glut in mid price units but certainly not the upmarket ones where there is still a demand, not necessarily just from mainland Chinese only. As for coal exports to China, it has plateaued even before the issue with the SCS man made islands crop up. Don’t get me wrong China is still Australia’s largest export market but what I personally think is, the current government realise there is only so much you can push and megaphone diplomacy does not achieve much.
