Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks
2021/06/23

Reuters: A UN committee has recommended that Australia's Great Barrier Reef be added to a list of "in danger" World Heritage Sites. It's a move that has angered Australia and the Australian government who believe it was influenced by political interference. A government source told Reuters reporter in Australia that the Canberra believes China is behind the move as China is currently chairing the committee. Do you have any comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: some people in Australia have been spreading China-related rumors disinformation out of ideological bias. In the same vein, what you just mentioned is totally groundless smear and slander.
