Why has the Australia-China relationship turned sour? | Inside Story

Ties between Australia and China are unravelling fast.
Beijing has imposed a tariff of up to 212 percent on Australian wine, the latest in an escalating dispute.
China says it’s a measure against dumping to protect its own wine industry.

The government in Canberra has criticised China’s handling of COVID-19, as well as human rights issues in Xinjiang and Hong Kong.
Is there room to repair the relationship?
