A declaration to give full support to the upcoming Beijing Games was approved by the heads of 205 national and regional Olympic committees yesterday at the morning session of their general assembly in the capital.
Announced by Gunilla Lindberg, secretary-general of the Association of the National Olympic Committees (ANOC), the declaration includes the following:
Athletes worldwide are willing to participate in the Beijing Games;
Any activities using the Olympic Games for political purposes will be rejected;
China has the confidence to seek solutions to its internal affairs.
The NOCs, under the International Olympic Committee (IOC), are responsible for organizing their respective countries' participation in the Games.
The special statement comes amid disruptions by Tibetan separatists and is expected to be issued after a joint meeting of the ANOC and the IOC Executive Board on Thursday.
The three-day biennial meeting of the ANOC in Beijing, which has attracted more than 700 representatives this time, will last till tomorrow, with the heads of national and regional Olympic committees worldwide coming together to discuss issues related to the Olympics.
Wu Bangguo, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, attended the opening ceremony yesterday morning, reiterating that China will fulfill its commitment to hold a successful Olympic Games this August.
"Holding the Olympic Games is the longtime expectation of Chinese people and hosting a high-level Olympic Games and a high-level Paralympic Games is the solemn commitment we have made to the whole world," Wu said.
"In the lead-up to the Games the Chinese government and Chinese people will fulfill our commitment to ensure the success of the Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games. We warmly welcome athletes, coaches and guests from all over the world to participate, witness and report the Beijing Games."
"The ANOC has supported very resolutely and firmly the organization of the Beijing Olympic Games and it will make all efforts so that the Games may achieve the greatest success for the benefit of the young athletes, and as a contribution towards friendship, solidarity and peace among the youth and all peoples from around the world," ANOC president Mario Vazquez Rana added in his opening speech.
"Organizing an Olympic Games is an extremely arduous and complex task. Only the closest cooperation between all members of the Olympic movement as well as the political will of China's government will make it possible to reach the high objectives sought with the Beijing Olympic Games," he said.
The issue of calls to boycott the Games also drew the attention of IOC President Jacques Rogge.
Some politicians have played with the idea of boycotts, but there is "no momentum for a generalized boycott", Rogge said.
"We need the unity of the Olympic movement to help us overcome the difficulties. Our major responsibility is to offer good games to the athletes who deserve them," Rogge said.
The ANOC assembly will be followed by an executive board meeting of the IOC in Beijing from April 10-11. It will include updates on preparations for the Beijing Games, the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and 2012 London Summer Games.

Yep.

That's significant.

The Olympic Committees come out in support of their own decisions....Okay....BIG surprize!

They might have well said "We weren't wrong to award the Games to the country and regime that has committed the most mass murderer of any in history: we are not complete idiots"

They would, or course, be incorrect on both counts.

I fail to be impressed.

You have never been to school, you know nothing of history or reality and you consistantly spout any capitalist right wing BS of the day that crosses the TV screen you have absolutely no information about any subject that has not been sanctioned by Washington and or Isreal and embraced by your simple minded peers. You are a complete waste of oxygen and sunlight. It is a fact that the USA is the worlds champion terrorist state and has been and is responsible for the most premature unnatural deaths for all reasons of all time and that my dim witted fellow is irrefutable concrete fact.

China should be hang out to dry on this one. They do not represent peace, the Olympic games do not belong with them. To prosecute monks because of their peaceful ideas simply because the iron fist in China wants the uranium under the ground occupied by a peace loving religious group like the Tibetans is morally wrong, for that China doesn't deserve respect in the eyes of freedom, civil liberties and world peace. The Chines iron fist has no regard for human well being all they give two ****s about is how they will produce cheap products while they poison little children with unfit contaminated toys. The truth is that the Americans are really no deferent in the platform of Imperialistic exploitation, while the Brits are not far behind. The Brits have gone all over the world colonizing exploiting venerable people and at the end they limit immigration to their country. How hypocritical is that.

So, tell me Dark Beaver, were you born a moron, or have you had to work at it?

I suspect you were born with tendencies in that direction, and with hard work have perfected your talent for idiocy.

Guess what, super-twit, MARXISM IS A COMPLETE FAILURE, it doesn't work, it was the fantasy of Karl, no closer to reality than Tolkien's fantasies........

Not that China is socialist anyway, it is, in fact, a fascist country.........a tightly controled capitalist system with no liberty, a burgeoning military, and a government that exerts control over the population partly by intimidation, partly by invoking extreme nationalist feelings..........especially in reference to real or imagined historical slights or injustices......

Gee, you are defending Jack-booted right wingers trying to pass themselves off as socialists........it is a wonder they aren't still dressed in Mao jackets


Statists are idiots. Period.......no exceptions.
