Palmer slams Chinese government in TV debate
(08-19 18:26)

Australian billionaire politician, Clive Palmer, has hit out at the Chinese government in a television debate, calling them "mongrels who shoot their own people".
The mining tycoon was being questioned about a legal battle he was involved in with a Chinese state-owned company, in a long-running dispute over an iron ore project in Western Australia.
But the Premier of Western Australia, Colin Barnett, said Mr Palmer's comments could damage Sino-Australian ties, adding that he will personally apologise to the Chinese government for what he had said. --RTHK
