Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks on China-Australia Relations
2019/03/15

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang responded to questions on China-Australia relations in the Regular Press Conference on March 15.

Q: It is reported that during press interviews, some former Australian government officials and diplomats called on the Australian government to view China's rise in an objective manner. They believe that instead of containing China, Australia should develop its relations with China in ways that contribute more to its environment and interests. What is your comment?

A: We have noted relevant reports. I want to reiterate that a sound and stable China-Australia relationship serves the common interests of the two countries and peoples. We hope that the Australian side will heed these objective and rational voices inside Australia and work with China to move forward the China-Australia comprehensive strategic partnership on the basis of mutual respect and equal treatment.
