On November 30, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Hua Chunying presided over the regular press conference. A reporter asked about Australian Prime Minister Morrison’s request for an apology from China. Earlier, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian published a cartoon on his personal Twitter condemning the Australian army’s atrocities in Afghanistan.

Hua Chunying said that some Australian soldiers have committed serious crimes in Afghanistan. This was reported by the Australian media itself and was confirmed by the Australian Ministry of Defense investigation report. Australian Defence Force Commander Campbell held a special conference to introduce the contents of the report. The details disclosed in the report are shocking and creepy. These included shooting adult men and boys together, or blindfolded and cutting their throats; two fourteen-year-old boys cut their throats and put them in their pockets into the river; and also required recruits to shoot and kill prisoners of war to”train their hands.” These brutal crimes of Australia have been strongly condemned and condemned by the international community.

Hua Chunying pointed out that the Australian side reacted so strongly to my colleague’s personal tweets to show that it is reasonable for some soldiers in Australia to coldly kill innocent civilians in Afghanistan, but is it unreasonable for someone to condemn this cold crime? ? The fate of the Afghan people is also fate. What the Australian government should do is to reflect deeply, bring the perpetrators to justice, make a formal apology to the Afghan people, and solemnly promise to the international community that this terrible crime will never be committed again.

Hua Chunying said, you just mentioned that he said that the Chinese government should”feel ashamed”, so is it the Australian government’s behavior to send Australian soldiers to Afghanistan? There are soldiers in Australia who have committed such atrocious crimes. Should the Australian government”feel ashamed” or should they”feel ashamed” for their soldiers to kill innocent civilians in Afghanistan?
