China Cuts Australian Beef Imports Amid CCP Virus Tension

China Cuts Australian Beef Imports Amid CCP Virus Tension”

It is thought to have started at an animal market in the Chinese city of Wuhan late previous year.

The Chinese regime has rejected calls by Australia and other governments for an worldwide inquiry into the origin of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which emerged in December in central China.

In retaliation, Chinese customs authorities suspended four large beef exporters from Australia and threatened to introduce a tariff of up to 80 percent on Australian barley shipments.

Australia is pushing for an independent inquiry into the coronavirus outbreak to help prevent future pandemics, but the move has angered China, its largest trading partner, which believes such a call is anti-China propaganda.

China's customs agency "continuously" found examples of the Australian companies violating inspection and quarantine requirements and suspended the imports to "ensure the safety and health of Chinese consumers".

Trade minister Simon Birmingham requested a telephone call with Chinese commerce minister Zhong Shan after four large beef exporters were suspended by Chinese customs authorities, Birmingham's office said today.

Birmingham said today Australia would continue to support an worldwide inquiry into the coronavirus.

"Chinese officials say both privately and publicly that these are unconnected matters, that the investigations in relation to barley and the issues in relation o beef have been running for 12-18 months in duration before they've reached these decisions".

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has stressed that the government has taken "completely unremarkable" steps in response to China's economic sanctions on Australian exports and will continue to take diplomatic steps toward resolving the matter. There is a feeling that Canberra should have quietly sought backing for any global inquiry rather than antagonizing China with public pronouncements. The bilateral relationship was under strain well before then over allegations of Chinese meddling in Australia's domestic politics and claims of cyber espionage and theft.
