a run for president. growing backing for scotland's leader disapproval of bragg's driving renewed support for independence from the u.k. . now china is threatening to take action against australia prime minister scott morrison and out a series of measures in response to hong kong's new security law this trailing in government is suspending its extradition treaty with hong kong it will also extend visas for hong kong residents in the country china imposed the new security law last week it gives police sweeping new powers and publishes a range of crimes including criticizing the government. our government together with other governments around the world have been very consistent in expressing our
11:02 am
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 our extradition agreement with aung hong kong katrina u. is standing by for us in beijing for more on china's reaction but 1st let's go over to nicola gage she's live for us in sydney in the color this is a significant and potentially costly souring of relations between the 2 countries right. yet this is quite a significant announcement and it was always going to be met with absolute. by beijing is surely has essentially told its biggest trading partner that it does not believe its red is safe in hong kong now this also is about the extradition
11:03 am
order says that it decided because of these new security rules that it had no option but to act because if we were to extradite someone from australia to your hong kong that person would end up in mainland china of course this comes on the back of houghton tensions already there have been claims that china has been a behind some of the sauber attacks in a strike at this bank claims of political meddling in interference in astray by beijing and since a strategy a push for a an inquiry into the origins of coronavirus we have seen beijing act with the agricultural sector we've had massive tower of so on bali we have banned some beef imports and there have been concerned that a strategy is lucrative coal industry would be next so many people in australia that this is necessary move maybe one that the prime minister scott morrison thought he had nothing else to lose because of the trade dispute that is going on
11:04 am
but it will no doubt be costly and many businesses will be quite nervous about. how you see is going to be for people from hong kong for actually take advantage of these visa concessions being extended to them. well look the announcement that this. made doesn't go as far as what the u.k. was proposing with people potentially becoming citizens but at the moment it's really targeting the 10000 also as students and skilled workers who are already in a strategy of so for those people from hong kong in astronomy or. they will be able to extend their visas for 5 years with the potential of becoming permanent residents the other interesting part here is that this trial is really targeting businesses it is said that it will be setting up incentives to entice businesses that may want to move out of hong kong to set up in a stroller and with that they will be allowed to get visas for all their staff
11:05 am
which then could become permanent bases and those people could have permanent residency so this is nor doubt going to inflame tensions between beijing and a strange beijing has already responded pretty seriously. thanks so much we'll leave it there for now with nicola gage let's go over to beijing though and get the latest from katrina you she joins us live from there katrina will china's reaction be limited to only words seems to be one of the big questions right now will have to wait and see sami certainly china has a few actions it could take it knows very well that australia is one of the developing countries developed countries which is most reliant on china economically and definitely china could push some of these pressure points that was truly has in terms of their bilateral relationship they're furious at this response
11:06 am
we've had china's foreign ministry come out of hitting back at australia mirroring some of this earlier comments that we heard from the chinese embassy in australia saying that these accusations are groundless these measures are groundless and that they deplore in a poor is them asking us really are to step back let's have a listen to what general the gender foreign ministry spokesperson had to say about this earlier this afternoon. yeah don't waiver what if the comments images from the australian side constitute grave violations of international law and basic international relations as well as gross interference in chinese domestic affairs will not work on china we condemn the comments and reserve the right to take further actions in response or consequences will be borne by the australian side. that's quite strong language in the past we've had the chinese foreign ministry condemning such actions that's not a surprise but it's not very common that they will specifically admit to taking
11:07 am
action in response to something like this and i mention that they know that australia is quite reliant on china economically well jolly jen went on to mention some of those pressure points that he could that china could take advantage of for example he mentioned that chinese students going to australia have been warned about potential racist attitudes or racist attacks or racial experience of that they might encounter when they go to australia so jolly jen mentioned that any chinese students considering going to australia should undertake strict risk assessments and be prepared for unwelcoming behavior and this is really a sore point for australia because a stray or really relies on chinese international students for a 3rd of their educational a revenue so that will be definitely be a sore point if there's an impact on the amount of chinese students going to australia it remains to be seen as really is a very popular destination for chinese students he also hit back at the australian
