China called on Australia to take into account the feelings of Asian countries as Sydney contemplates buying a fleet of submarines from Japan.

In some of his strongest remarks on the possible deal, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters that Australia should consider the context of Japan's role in the Second World War in developing its military relationship with Tokyo.

Wang made the remarks to journalists during a joint briefing with visiting Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

Australia this year will pick the design for a new fleet of submarines in a deal worth as much as 29 billion dollars.
