China condemns Clinton's remarks

The Chinese foreign ministry has strongly criticized US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her comments about Beijing's human rights record.

Earlier this week, Clinton denounced China's clampdown on dissents as a "fool's errand" and accused Beijing of trying to stop the course of history.

Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu hit back and said Clinton's remarks were inappropriate.

"It is inappropriate for anyone to relate or compare China to some west Asian and north African nations facing turmoil," Jiang said in a statement on the ministry's website.

"And any attempt to direct the Middle East turmoil to China and change the development path chosen by the Chinese people will be futile," she added

Clinton's comments have also sparked criticism among the Chinese.

An online poll shows that 86 percent of the people feel Clinton has disrespected their country.

The developments come as relations between Beijing and Washington have been deteriorating over a number of issues, including currency debates and the Pentagon's arms sales to Taiwan.

China has reduced its military cooperation with the Pentagon over the 6.4-billion-dollar US arms sales to Taiwan. China considers the island as part of its territory.
