China ‘Strongly Dissatisfied’ With U.S. Comment Over Tiananmen

China is “strongly dissatisfied” over U.S. comment about the 1989 Tiananmen Square incident, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin told a briefing today in Beijing.

China opposes the comment, Liu said. U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner issued a statement yesterday encouraging China to publicly account for all those killed and “end the continued harassment of demonstration participants and their families.”
