The Australian government is taking action to ensure the security of its citizens and government buildings by examining and removing Chinese-made surveillance cameras from its national sites.

According to the Australian Defence Ministry, the government is currently conducting an assessment of the surveillance technology in order to identify any potential security risks.

The BBC reported that the Australian government is removing Chinese surveillance cameras from Commonwealth offices, due to security fears.

Yahoo News reported that the government is also taking action to remove Chinese-made security cameras from the Australian War Memorial, a national site of remembrance for those who have served in the Australian Defence Force.

The Australian government has not yet commented on the specific measures it is taking to remove the cameras, but it is clear that the security of its citizens and national sites is a priority.
