    Sino-Australia relations / Chinese spacecraft landing on the moon

    On Friday's Backchat, Sino-Australian relations and China's spacecraft landing on the moon. Relations between Australia and China, its largest trading partner, have soured since Morrison called for an independent international investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year. China has blocked billions of dollars worth of Australian exports from lobsters to wine in recent months, all the while refusing to accept phone calls from Australian ministers.

    Ties soured further this week when a senior Chinese official posted an image/cartoon of an Australian soldier holding a knife with blood on it to the throat of an Afghan child, prompting Morrison to demand an apology from Beijing.

    What are the impacts on both sides? How can the matter be resolved? Is this a long-term thing?

    From 9:15am-9:30am, we'll be discussing China's spacecraft landing on the moon surface earlier this week.

    Let us know your thoughts, you can leave a message on our Facebook, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk or give us a call on 23388266.

    US elections; Animal cruelty

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, US elections, and animal abuse.
    Some of the United States' biggest and closest allies quickly congratulated Democrat Joe Biden on Saturday, recognising his presidential election victory even though Donald Trump, with whom several have had rocky relations, had yet to concede.
    Meanwhile, In his unsuccessful campaign for re-election, US President Donald Trump repeatedly warned that a victory for Joe Biden would be a win for China and that Beijing would "own America"; Was he right?
    What are the implications for Sino-US relations, and for us in Hong Kong? Will Biden
    treat the city differently?
