Bush: China must end detentions, ensure rights

BANGKOK, Thailand – With all eyes on Beijing, President Bush bluntly told China that America stands in “firm opposition” to the way the communist government represses its own people, a rebuke delivered from the heart of Asia on the cusp of the Olympic Games.

Bush balanced his chiding with praise for China’s market reforms and hope that it will embrace freedom, reflecting the delicate balance that Bush seeks to strike with the potent U.S. rival.

“We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly, and labor rights not to antagonize China’s leaders, but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential,” Bush said in perhaps his last major Asia address.
