Remarks by Chinese Embassy Spokesperson regarding relevant DFAT statement
2020/04/29

In response to the DFAT statement issued on the evening of 28 April, the Embassy Spokesperson would like to make the following remarks:

The Q&A of the Embassy Spokesperson in the afternoon of 28 April was a legitimate response to the earlier breach of diplomatic protocol by the Australian side. The report on the phone call between the Chinese Ambassador and DFAT Secretary first appeared on Australian media. The phone call itself as well as the content of the conversation was obviously leaked by some Australian officials. As the Australian media report was inaccurate and misleading, the Embassy had no choice but to set the record straight.

The Embassy of China doesn’t play petty tricks, this is not our tradition. But if others do, we have to reciprocate.
