Public opinion on Tibet important – Rudd

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says the world has to be mindful of public opinion on the issue of Tibet. Mr Rudd said that as well as his public remarks on the issue, he had spent a lot of time in private discussions during his visit.

“China has got a very tough line on Tibet,” he told ABC Radio from China.

“My job is to argue strongly the case for negotiation and for the non-use of violence.

“But no one is pretending this is easy and I’m not, but I continue to argue the case.”
