Remarks by the Chinese Embassy's Spokesperson on AUSMIN Joint Statement
2020/07/29

We firmly reject and oppose the unfounded accusations and attacks against China on issues related to Hong Kong, Xinjiang and the South China Sea made in the recent Joint Statement of Australia-U.S. Ministerial Consultations (AUSMIN). Their assertions, in disregard of basic facts, violated international law and basic norms governing international relations and grossly interfered in China's internal affairs.

We reiterate that the Chinese side is unwavering in upholding national sovereignty, security and its legitimate rights and interests. We are firmly committed to maintaining regional peace and stability. Any attempt to pressure China will never succeed.

We urge Australia not to go further on the road of harming China-Australia relations, and truly proceeding from its own interests,  do more things that are conducive to mutual trust and cooperation between the two countries.
