China FM: Don't politicize Olympics
China's foreign minister warned Friday that attempts to politicize Beijing's Olympic Games next year by linking them to the Darfur crisis in Sudan or other issues are doomed to fail.

"There are a handful of people who are trying to politicize the Olympic Games," Yang Jiechi said at a press briefing with visiting British Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett. "Their objectives ... will never be attained."

He said China believes "the political process and the peacekeeping operation should be pursued and promoted in a balanced manner."
