China rebukes U.S. presidential hopeful's remarks of toy import ban 2007-12-20 20:32:57   Print

    BEIJING, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday criticized U.S. presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama's remarks of banning Chinese toys as "unobjective" and "unwise".

    A vast majority of Chinese products are reliable and safe on quality, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a regular press conference.

    China has repeatedly stated its stance on product safety, said Qin in response to Obama's remarks.

    "China attaches great attention to product quality. A series of laws and regulations have been put into effect and effective measures have been implemented these years," he said.

    No country has products that 100 percent up to standard, Qin said. "It is not objective and unwise to say no to all products due to the low quality of a small part of products," he said.

    "We should not take a one-sided approach to the issue of products' safety," Qin said.

    He called on American consumers to trust Chinese products and hoped Chinese products could add festive atmosphere to them during the coming Christmas holidays.
