China says Australia should avoid aggravating already strained bilateral ties

/ 05:56 PM April 22, 2021

Australia is the only country to tear up a Belt and Road agreement, setting a dangerous precedent, said Wang Wenbin, a spokesman at the Chinese foreign ministry.

China reserves the right to take further actions, Wang said at a regular media briefing.
