Senator ANDERSON - If the honourable senator is talking in classical terms, my answer is that of course we have a diplomatic exchange with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. He would appreciate therefore that, in the classical sense, it is a friendly nation. We are not at odds with mainland China in relation to trade. It is possible for Australians to go to China and it is possible for the Chinese to come here in the ordinary course of events on passports. I do not think one can attempt to write any-, thing at all into these relationships which are not peculiar to mainland China. As I have pointed out, Australia has in fact a diplomatic exchange with Russia. There is a Russian Embassy in Canberra.
