Rudd raises Tibet rights issues in China

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has delivered a blunt message to China in a speech in Beijing, saying there are significant human rights problems in Tibet.

“Australia, like most other countries, recognises China sovereignty over Tibet but we also believe it is necessary to recognise there are significant human rights problems in Tibet,” Mr Rudd told students at Peking University on the first day of his visit to China.
