China: Clinton "Super Arrogant" on Syria

The official newspaper of the People's Republic of China said, Monday, that criticism by United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of Beijing's position regarding Syria was "super arrogant". This is the first public response of China to Clinton, who said last week that the Chinese and Russian veto of sanctions in the Security Council against President Bashar Al-Assad's treatment of his people was "despicable".

The newspaper said that after the war in Iraq, the United States has no right to speak for the Arab people.
