Beef ban not tied to call for independent enquiry into COVID-19: Australia’s Trade Minister

On Tuesday, Simon Birmingham, Australia’s Minister for Trade said, China’s decision to ban the import of Australian beef was not a response to its call for a fair and independent enquiry into the origins of the coronavirus disease COVID-19.

Birmingham had earlier stated, Kilcoy Pastoral Company, JBS’s Beef City and Dinmore plants, and the Northern Cooperative Meat Company have been banned from exporting beef to China because of issues with labelling.

China is increasingly trying to suppress calls for an enquiry into the origin of the coronavirus, which emerged in Wuhan in late 2019.

Diplomatic ties between the two countries have publicly soured over the issue, much like it has with other countries who have called for such an enquiry.
