Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks
2020/01/08

Q: Severe bushfires have taken place in the Australian states of New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. The blazes have scorched over 6 million hectares of land, killed more than 20 lives, burned down over 2,000 houses and displaced thousands of local residents. I wonder if you could comment on that?

A: We noted media reports on that, and we express our sincere sympathies to Australia for the heavy casualties and property losses caused by severe bushfires in many areas.
