Australia’s foreign affairs minister, Marise Payne, says she has had a “very positive” meeting with her Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, despite Scott Morrison’s decision this week to publicly push China to step up on emissions reduction and fair trade.
As the UN’s chief, António Guterres, warned the 74th UN general assembly in New York that the world faced a “great fracture”, with the countries at risk of cleaving between the great powers of the US and China, Payne met the Chinese foreign affairs minister on the sidelines of the event for their second conversation in two months.
Australia’s media States…
… has never been more concentrated, at a time when clear, factual reporting is so desperately needed. Guardian Australia will hold the new Coalition government to account and continue to report on the escalating climate emergency. We are editorially independent, free from commercial and political bias – this means we can promise to keep delivering quality journalism without favour or interference.
More people are reading and supporting our independent, investigative reporting than ever before. And unlike many news organisations, we have chosen an approach that allows us to keep our journalism accessible to all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford.
The Guardian is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias and not influenced by billionaire owners, politicians or shareholders. No one edits our editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important as it enables us to give a voice to those less heard, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.
Every contribution we receive from readers like you, big or small, goes directly into funding our journalism. This support enables us to keep working as we do – but we must maintain and build on it for every year to come.
