China indicated that it wants Australia to act to improve strained relations, saying Canberra should know what needs to be done to get ties back on track.

“China has been pragmatic in growing its business relations with all partners. A healthy relationship needs the nurturing and care of both sides,” Assistant Minister of Commerce Li Chenggang said Wednesday at a press conference in Beijing. “Australia should know more clearly than China what it needs to do to improve this relationship.”
