Facebook has reached an agreement with the Australian government. Australian users will be able to read the news normally.

February 23rd local time, Australian Treasury Secretary Freitenberg said that Zuckerberg expressed his willingness to sign a business agreement with Australian news agencies through discussions and communication with Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.

This temporarily eased the dispute between the two sides over Australia over the payment of news.

Freidenberg said that the Australian government’s policy of paying for news will also make moderate concessions to ensure that Australian Facebook users use functions such as news reading normally.

On the 17th of this month, the House of Commons of the Australian Parliament passed a bill called the Compulsory Negotiation Guidelines for News Media and Digital Platforms, requiring Internet companies to pay Australian media when using news links.
