US urged to curb 'odious conduct' of anti-China lawmakers
Adjust font size:

The U.S. side should curb the "odious conduct" of a handful of anti-China lawmakers, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao in Beijing on Thursday.

Liu made the remarks when commenting on a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, which citing the "Olympic traditions of freedom and openness," criticized China on human rights issues and asked the Chinese Government to stop supporting the governments of Sudan and Myanmar.

The House of Representatives passed the resolution proposed by a handful of anti-China lawmakers against China's firm opposition. This disclosed their malicious intention to politicize the Olympic Games, and interrupt and sabotage the Beijing Olympic Games, Liu said.

He noted such a deed itself is blasphemy to the Olympic spirit, and is against the common wishes of people all around the world, including people in the United States. China has made solemn representations to the U.S. administration and Congress, urging the U.S. side to concretely curb the "odious conduct" of a handful of anti-China lawmakers.

Liu said to hold a successful Olympic Games is the dream of the Chinese people for many years, as well as the common expectation of people across the world. We firmly believe that the Beijing Olympic Games will become a great world sports event with the joint efforts and support of the big Olympic family.

We advise those anti-China lawmakers in the U.S. Congress to see clearly the situation and change their course so as to avoid further harming their own images, Liu said.
