for scotland's leader and disapproval of bragg's it driving renewed support for independence from the u.k. . australia has suspended its extradition treaty with hong kong in response to china imposing a new security law it's also extending visas for hong kong residents in australia and offering them ways to get permanent residency the government is warning citizens in the territory they could be at greater risk of being arrested under the new legislation punishes a range of crimes including criticizing the government with harsh prison sentences and our government together with other governments around the world have been very consistent in expressing our concerns about the imposition of the national security law on hong kong and. today we have agreed to
announce that that national security law constitutes a fundamental change of circumstances in respect to extradition agreement with hong kong and nicolette gage is live for us now from sydney necker as i'm sure you know china is the top trading partner of australia it's in the top 10 or foreign direct investors how much concern is about retaliation from china. well this will no doubt infuriate beijing which will see it as a strongly a trying to meddle in its own internal affairs and we need to remember that china is a strangely its biggest trade partner and throughout this time we've seen heightened temp diplomatic tensions and that has led to huge problems in the agricultural industry with high tariffs on bali some beef imports suspended and this has

this is quite modest the main opposition party did want to go further than this so right now it's really about those 10000 students and skilled workers in a stroller but there is potential as well for future skilled workers in hong kong to move over the focus really being on getting these businesses across and of course this will absolutely beijing at a time when diplomatic tensions are extremely high between the 2 countries all right nicola gauge there from sydney heavy rain is hampering rescue and recovery efforts in southern japan following widespread flooding and landslides at least 59 people have died work is underway in some areas to clear the rubble downpours are common of this time of the year but meteorologists say rain clouds and stayed above japan for longer than usual. so b.
