People attend the the New Year's eve carnival at the Time Square, in Hong Kong, south China, on Jan. 1, 2008.    BEIJING, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- China opposes any actions trying to politicize the Olympic Games, said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu at a regular press conference.

    The Olympic Games is a sport gala for the whole world and the Chinese government is carefully fulfilling its commitment in the preparation of the Games, Jiang said.

    "However, at this moment, a few organizations are attaching some topics to the Olympic Games to slur China's image and to put pressure on the Chinese government. Their purposes are unspeakable and they can't succeed, because they are against the Olympic spirit," said Jiang.

    "No country in the world is perfect in human right issues. The Chinese people are enjoying many rights that they have never enjoyed before." Jiang said, "The Chinese government has consistently advocated dialogues on an equal footing to narrow disparities and to boost human right development around the world."
