Well done Kev

Kevin offers an opinion to the Chinese:

UNFAZED by the growing diplomatic unrest, Kevin Rudd has told the Chinese in their own language there are "significant" human rights problems in Tibet.

Speaking in Mandarin at Peking University yesterday, the Prime Minister said Australians were concerned about Tibet and that he would push the issue during talks with the Premier, Wen Jiabao, today and the President, Hu Jintao, on Saturday.

Mr Rudd, the first Western leader to speak Mandarin, said Australia recognised Chinese sovereignty over Tibet "but we also believe it is necessary to recognise there are significant human rights problems in Tibet".

From here.
