China reiterates vow to facilitate Olympic reporting
Adjust font size:

China on Tuesday reiterated its pledge to fulfill its commitment to facilitate Olympic reporting.

"The Chinese government will abide by the Olympics' reporting rules seriously and completely, and try its best to facilitate the reporting," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao told a regular briefing.

His comments came in response to a foreign reporter's question on how China dealt with complaints from some TV rights holders of the Games that they were not being allowed the access what they want.

Liu said China's relevant press and security departments had heeded those reporters' requests.

"We think some requests are reasonable, but we must accommodate both the need for security and journalists' need to report."

In January 2007, China unveiled reporting rules that are valid through the Games and allow foreign journalists to report throughout the country.

"We continue to urge relevant departments, including local governments, to implement and fulfil commitments made in the relevant regulations," Liu said.
