(2014/08/21)

Q: According to the Australian media reports on August 19, Clive Palmer, a member of the House of Representatives of the Australian Federal Parliament, made some erroneous remarks concerning China during an interview with an Australia media. What is China's comment on this?

A: The relevant remarks made by Clive Palmer, a member of the House of Representatives of the Australian Federal Parliament, are completely unreasonable and absurd, to which we express our strong condemnation.

We noted that Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Foreign Minister Bishop and other senior officials as well as people from all walks of life have publicly refuted Palmer's words. This shows that Palmer is alone in what he said and did.
