SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the country’s relationship with China “mutually beneficial” on Friday, amid an intensifying row with Beijing over a proposed international inquiry into the coronavirus outbreak.

China, Australia’s No.1 trading partner, has accused Canberra of “petty tricks” in the dispute that could affect diplomatic and economic ties between the countries. [nL3N2CH15J]
