Hu stands firm on Tibet during Rudd meeting

Post by shammy on Sat Apr 12, 2008 1:19 pm

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has again raised human rights abuses in Tibet with China, but has gained no concessions.

Mr Rudd has met for one hour with the Chinese President, Hu Jintao.

He says he put forward his views about significant problems in Tibet, but President Hu's position remains unchanged.

But the Prime Minister says they have agreed on other issues including climate change and trade.

"We are committed to building a stronger, deeper broader Australia china relationship into the future," Mr Rudd said.

"President Hu committed China to building and constructing a new chapter in the Australia-China relationship as well.

"I emphasised we wanted to partner with China in developing further clean coal technology and setting ambitious goals for us both as countries which have significant roles to play when it comes to coal in getting this technology right and getting it right as soon as possible."

President Hu said Beijing's conflict with the Dalai Lama was purely a question of national unity and nothing to do with ethnicity, religion or human rights, Xinhua news agency reported.
