WA Premier Mark McGowan has told leaders in the eastern states "bad luck" while insisting WA's hard border closure will remain in place for "months to come".
It comes after Federal Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham said if COVID-19 continued to be successfully suppressed in Australia, states should relax their border controls.
"If one or two states were to hold out then they will be answerable to their tourism industry and will ultimately need to provide additional support to that industry," he said.
But Mr McGowan said WA would not be succumbing to pressure from Canberra to lift its border closure.
Mark McGowan says the border will remain closed "for as long as is required".(ABC News: Hugh Sando)"I know the New South Wales Premier is unhappy, I know Mr Birmingham is unhappy. But frankly, bad luck," he said.
"We're doing the right thing by the people of WA.
"It might inconvenience the New South Wales Premier and some people from the eastern states, but frankly, I don't give a damn."
