SYDNEY: Australian Foreign Minister Marais Payne will take up the issue of country's anxiety over detention camps located in the southern southern region of China during a visit to Beijing this week. Millions of people have been charged without any charges in these detention camps. Maris Payne said that he will register "serious objection" to the camps located in Xinjiang where thousands of Uighurs and other Muslim minorities have been detained.
About three years later an Australian Foreign Minister is traveling to China. Payne told national broadcaster ABC, "Obviously we have a very strong relationship and it works in the interest of both sides and we are committed to building a comprehensive diplomatic partnership." China is Australia's largest trading partner. But in recent years there has been tension between the two countries. Such allegations are that China is interfering in its domestic politics and is using the funds to regain its footprint in the country.
