Australia has canceled two agreements with China over its ambitious Belt and Road project.

On Wednesday, Australian Foreign Minister Mary Payne announced the cancellation of four agreements with China, but two agreements on the Belt and Road project are under intense discussion.

Notably, the two agreements were signed by Victoria Province with China in 2018 and 2019 instead of Australia.
