|Chinese FM Spokesperson: Australia Should Honestly Face Up to the International Community's Concerns|
At a regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China on 2 November, spokesperson Wang Wenbin answered a question about Australia's nuclear submarine cooperation with relevant countries.
Journalist: According to media reports, French President Macron said in an interview with an Australian media outlet during the G20 Summit that Australian Prime Minister Morrison lied to the French side on the nuclear submarine contract. Whether he will trust the Australian side again will depend on what Morrison delivers, he added. Do you have any comment?
Wang Wenbin: China has clearly stated its principled position on Australia's nuclear submarine cooperation with relevant countries. Australia should not only give honest answers to its partner's questioning, but also honestly face up to the international community's concerns, earnestly fulfill its non-proliferation obligations, and stop such irresponsible behavior as creating bloc confrontation and proliferation risks.
