Prime Minister Scott Morrison says allegations about China’s attempts to interfere in federal politics are "deeply disturbing and troubling". However, he has stressed the need to wait until ASIO concludes an investigation into the claims that Chinese intelligence services offered to fund the federal election campaign of Melbourne car dealer Bo Zhao. A separate claim by Wang Liqiang about Chinese interference in federal politics is also under scrutiny. China has refuted his claim to have been a member of its military intelligence service. Wang is seeking asylum in Australia.
