China shares finished lower for a 2nd session running Tuesday as tensions with the US weighed on the market, with financial and transport stocks lead the decline.

The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 0.3% to 5,009.88, while the Shanghai Composite Index slipped 0.2% to 3,410.18.

Japanese shares ended lower for the 3rd straight session Tuesday, as a month-long rally paused to refresh.

The Nikkei share average lost 0.30% to 26,467.08. The broader Topix shed 0.11% to 1,758.81.

 Australian shares closed higher for a 6th session running Tuesday, lifted by data showing an improvement in business sentiment in the country and tracking an overnight rally on Wall Street.
