It demands World Health Organisation director-general Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus "initiate at the earliest appropriate moment ... a stepwise process of impartial, independent and comprehensive evaluation" of the global response to the pandemic, the actions of the WHO and its timeline of the pandemic.

The Australian government does not expect China to oppose an inquiry into the origins of coronavirus on Tuesday, senior Morrison government sources said.

"We are deeply concerned by the morbidity and mortality caused by COVID-19 pandemic, the negative impacts on physical and mental health and social well-being, the negative impacts on economy and society and the consequent exacerbation of inequalities within and between countries", the resolution read.

Canberra has insisted the call for the inquiry into the pandemic, which it says most likely originated in a wildlife market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, is not politically targeted at Beijing.

Notably, the WHO had on January 23 declared COVID-19 as a global health emergency, but it waited for a week for its director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to return from China to announce the same.

The draft resolution is being proposed by a host of nations, including some of the most powerful, such as Russian Federation and the United Kingdom, as well as Australia, Japan and South Korea.

Australian Trade Minister Simon Birmingham has requested discussions on the trade issues with his Chinese counterpart, he told the Australian Broadcasting Corp in a television interview yesterday.

New Zealand is part of a coalition of 62 countries backing an Australian push for an investigation into the origin of the Covid-19 outbreak in China.

The four abattoirs' combined exports made up almost a fifth of Australia's beef exports to China.

Mr Birmingham said Australia reserved its rights to bring a case against China at the World Trade Organisation if Beijing imposed the tariffs on Australian barley.

Birmingham stated though Australia is open for dialogue and authorities to authorities communication continues to be occurring, China is but to accommodate his request for a name with his counterpart.

He said the government has lodged a comprehensive response to China's 18-month investigation into barley dumping, rejecting the suggestion that the Australian industry is subsidised so it can flood the market with cheaply priced barley.

Australia isn't ruling out taking China to the World Trade Organisation over the 80 per cent tariff on barley.

Since then, the barley threat has surfaced, while four major Australian abattoirs have been blocked from sending their product to China.

"Australia has used WTO disputes with other valued partners around the world in recent years".
