Recently, at a regular press conference of the Ministry of foreign affairs, a reporter asked: Recently, we have seen that China has adopted a series of restrictive measures against a variety of Australian imports. In response, Australian Trade Minister Birmingham recently said whether we can sit down at the negotiation table and have a dialogue. The ball is on the Chinese side. Some Australian media also said that Australia should not give up its national interests What is Chinas comment on values?
Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that looking back on China Australia relations in the past few years, some people in Australia stuck to the Cold War mentality and ideological prejudice, regarded Chinas development as a threat, and then adopted a series of wrong words and deeds related to China. This is the fundamental reason for the sharp decline of Sino Australian relations and the difficulty.
Zhao Lijian stressed that the serious difficulties currently facing China Australia relations are something that China does not want to see, and the responsibility for this situation is entirely not on China. Australia should face up to the crux of the setback in bilateral relations, look at China and Chinas development objectively and rationally, earnestly uphold the principle of mutual respect and equal treatment, handle bilateral relations, and do more things conducive to enhancing mutual trust and promoting cooperation between the two countries.
Australian Prime Ministers painting style changes
According to the exchange policy and exchange 23 in Washington, D.C., Morrison was forced to give a policy exchange speech in Beijing. He added that Australias action was not part of a strategic move to try to contain China..
Our actions have been wrongly viewed and interpreted only from the perspective of strategic competition between China and the United States. Its like Australia, as an independent sovereign state, does not have its own independent interests or views, Morrison claimed. This is wrong and unnecessarily worsens the relationship between the two countries.
In addition, Morrison also mentioned in his speech that Chinas economic rise is good for Australia and even the global economy.
Later, he spoke highly of Chinas poverty alleviation efforts. No country can lift so many people out of poverty like China. Australia is happy to play its part in the economic release of millions of Chinese, he praised
In addition, in an interview with the media on November 26 local time, Morrison talked about Sino Australian relations when asked about the detention of Australian coal ships in China. He said that although the current relationship between the two countries is in an unusual period, Australia wants to live in harmony and establish positive relations with China. They are our biggest trading partners.
