China’s Foreign Ministry is out with a statement after Beijing banned beef imports from Australia’s four abattoirs earlier this Tuesday.
The Ministry clarified that the suspension of beef imports from Australian firms is not linked to the coronavirus-related dispute. It is to protect the customers.
The customs found beef products from certain Australian firms violating the inspection requirements, Foreign Ministry reported.
The market mood still remains tepid, as traders fail to buy into the Chinese comments on the trade situation.
