Australian prime minister’s visit to China to be locked in at ‘appropriate time’

On Sunday, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese stated that he would schedule a visit to China at an “appropriate time” while emphasizing the significance of bilateral trade and expressing concerns about an Australian journalist detained in Beijing. Discussions are underway regarding Albanese’s visit to China as Australia’s centre-left Labor government aims to end unofficial Chinese bans and tariffs placed on some Australian products in 2020 during a low point in diplomatic relations. Albanese stated that “we’ll finalize the date at an appropriate time” when asked about when the visit would occur. He also mentioned that his next overseas trip would be in July to the NATO summit in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius. Albanese refused to comment on whether Australians detained in China would be released before his visit, but he reiterated a call for the release of Australian journalist Cheng Lei, who has been detained in Beijing since being arrested in September 2020. “Cheng Lei … should be released and should be allowed to come home to Australia,” he said on Sky News television, according to an official transcript. Albanese added that Australia continued to advocate for the removal of any impediments to trade between the “two great nations.” “The truth is that it is in Australia’s interest to export to China, but it’s also in China’s interest to receive those exports,” he said. In May, China announced that it was set to resume imports of Australian timber days after Trade Minister Don Farrell returned from a trip to Beijing. A visit by Foreign Minister Penny Wong in December was followed weeks later by the resumption of coal shipments.
