China and Australia agreed to resume all-round dialogue and further strengthen cooperation after the seventh round of China-Australia diplomatic and strategic dialogue in Australian capital Canberra on Wednesday.

In the dialogue led by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Australian counterpart Penny Wong, the two sides agreed to resume and establish dialogue in all areas and carry out cooperation in more fields including diplomacy, economy, trade, technology, education and law enforcement. The two sides also agreed to actively launch a dialogue on maritime affairs and take further measures to facilitate personnel exchanges between the two countries.

During their meeting in 2022, Wang said they had agreed to make efforts to break the ice and since then, exchanges and cooperation between the two countries have gradually resumed. Noting that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the China-Australia comprehensive strategic partnership, Wang said the two sides should build on the current momentum and work together to build more mature, stable and fruitful bilateral relationship.
