SHANGHAI, Aug 6 (Reuters) – China hopes that Australia will be prudent on Taiwan-related issues and avoid being led by others that could cause fresh trouble for ties between the two countries, a spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in Australia said on Saturday.
The remarks, posted on the embassy’s website, were commenting on a statement released by the secretary and foreign ministers of the United States, Australia and Japan on Friday in which they expressed concerns over China’s recent military exercises in the Taiwan strait.
