  • Australia's prime minister has condemned a fake image posted by China depicting an Australian soldier apparently murdering in Afghan child.

  • Australia has demanded China apologized for the picture, which was posted on a government Twitter account.

  • Meanwhile, China has urged Australia to apologize to the Afghan people.

  • It follows a report earlier this month about the conduct off Australian soldiers in Afghanistan.

  • It's the latest in a series of disputes between the two major trading partners.

  • I spoke to a journalist, Roger Maynard, in Sydney.

  • He had MAWR on the Australian prime ministers.

  • Hey branded the image a za repugnant on.

  • He demanded what he called this truly offensive image be removed from the social media site on.

  • He demanded an immediate apology for what he described as on outrageous and disgusting slur.

  • Now the the Post alludes to the findings of a report into the alleged murder of Afghan civilians and prisoners of war by members of Australia's elite Special Air Services group while they were based in Afghanistan several years ago.

  • Now these allegations have not been proven in a court of law on China's insensitive response has had the capacity toe further damage relations quite seriously between the two countries.

  • Ah, furious, Morrison said.

  • The Chinese government should be totally ashamed of this post but these two countries are big trading partners.

  • Is there any sign either side will try to make amends?

  • Well, not at the moment.

  • Certainly the row will further obviously further damage relations between Cameron Beijing, both countries in the middle of a trade war of the moment, which has led to the suspension off Australian exports, including beef and barley, shellfish, timber and wine.

  • China is one of Australia's, if no Australia's biggest export market, with sales of coal and iron or on agricultural goods worth billions of dollars.

  • So there's obviously a lot at stake here.

  • If things deteriorate any further, well, domain it in Sydney.

  • Thank you for that.
