The Chinese government on Friday warned citizens against travelling to Australia due to racial discrimination caused by the COVID19 pandemic.
” There has been an alarming increase recently in acts of racial discrimination and violence against Chinese and Asians in Australia, due to the impact of Covid-19 pandemic”, The Chinese Ministry of Culture and Tourism warned in a statement.
Australia has rejected the accusations, stating ” our rejection of these claims which have been falsely made by Chinese officials previously is well known to them”, trade minister Simon Birmingham said.
