|Chinese FM Spokesperson Zhao Lijian: Hope the relevant side do more to enhance China-Australia relations|
At a regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China on July 7, Spokesperson Zhao Lijian answered a question about the updated travel advice of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Australia against traveling to China.
Journalist: According to reports, in an updated travel advisory, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade warns citizens of arbitrary detention risk in China's mainland. Do you have any comment?
Zhao Lijian: I haven't read media reports on that. I can tell you that as a principle, the Chinese government always protects the safety and legitimate rights and interests of foreign nationals in China. There is no need to worry at all as long as they abide by laws and regulations. I hope the relevant side will look at this in an objective and fair manner and do more to enhance China-Australia relations.
