Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull backs Adani's controversial coal mine project in Queensland
Turnbull said "This is a project that has gone through extensive environmental permitting both at the state level and federal level, mostly state." He accused Opposition leader Bill Shorten of being two faced and lacking conviction over the Adani coal mine, warning that his approach posed an "enormous threat" to jobs.
