Remarks by the Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy to Australia
We strongly deplore the Australian federal MP Andrew Hastie’s rhetoric on “China threat” which lays bare his Cold-War mentality and ideological bias. It goes against the world trend of peace, cooperation and development. It is detrimental to China-Australian relations.
History has proven and will continue to prove that China’s peaceful development is an opportunity, not a threat to the world.
We urge certain Australian politicians to take off their “colored lens” and view China's development path in an objective and rational way. They should make efforts to promote mutual trust between China and Australia, instead of doing the opposite.
Good on you Andrew Hastie!
I think China's much happier giving gifts to compliant friends like Marise.
