    BEIJING, April 25 (Xinhuanet) -- Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Kong Quan said here Sunday that China is opposed to any comments or activities that threaten the personal safety of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

    "We are opposed to any comments or activities that threaten thepersonal safety of him (Arafat) and call for the Israeli side to be cautious with its comments and deeds so as to prevent the regional situation from further deteriorating," Kong said.
