(Global Times) Australia, in a landslide, won the title of "Least friendly country to China in 2017" in a recent online poll answered by Chinese netizens.

India, after trespassing into Chinese territory for more than two months this year, ranks second but the number of votes it gets is far below that of Australia.

The survey, conducted by Chinese news portal huanqiu.com, the Chinese website of the Global Times, opened on Monday. It asks one simple question "Which is the least friendly country to China in 2017?" Respondents are allowed to vote only once and pick just one choice.

By Wednesday, Australia had received 8,751 votes out of 14,667 participants, or 59.6 percent of all votes, followed by India (1,986 votes), the US (1,585 votes) and Japan (1,327 votes). South Korea ranked fifth with 572 votes.

This is the first time that huanqiu.com conducted such a survey.

Some Chinese experts say the result displays Chinese people's hatred of betrayal.

"In Chinese culture, treachery is really despised, and this is a key reason why Australia received the most votes," Yu Lei, a research fellow at the Oceania Research Center of Sun Yat-sen University, told the Global Times.

"China has made efforts to sincerely boost bilateral cooperation, but Australia has never stopped inflaming hostility on the South China Sea issue. Recently, Australian politicians' and the media's anti-China chorus became more rampant. Chinese netizens felt that China's efforts and sincerity in developing bilateral ties was not properly appreciated by Australia," said Yu.

In recent times Chinese students and businesspeople residing in Australia have been depicted as spies or government agents. And after a number of attacks on Chinese students in Australia, the Chinese embassy and consulates in the country issued a safety alert on December 19.

This was on "online" survey" and i do not believe it is a real indication of the facts.  These online surveys can be distorted to suit whatever outcome that is originally desired and i am suspicious the controls on this survey..That is my opinion.

That is a horrible stunt by a Chinese media company. It is criminally despicable to mix nationalism and politics with populism. Shame on those participants who based their vote on such propaganda lies such as India "invaded 'China'" to give India a negative image.

And what would the survey officials know about "treachery"? If "Chinese hate treachery" that much, why is it one of the known national scourges in China?

He smelled you, so did I.
Foul smell, it is.
Believe it or not, it's true.
