Last Updated: Tuesday, March 2, 2010 - 17:49

New Delhi: Hours within a fresh incident of
violence against Asians in his country, Australian Foreign
Minister Stephen Smith on Tuesday said they have zero tolerance for
assaults on Indians or against anyone else who comes to
Australia.

"Regrettable, we know as I said to my Parliament that
there have been some racial or racist overtones to a small
number of those assaults and we condemn them absolutely," he
said.

Smith pointed out that several steps have been taken to
ensure that when people visit his country they have an
"enjoyable and safe experience".
