China strongly condemned and has lodged stern representation to the Swedish Television SVT for insulting China in its news program, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Monday.
Spokesperson Geng Shuang made the remarks when asked for comments on a Swedish news program by the SVT which outrageously insulted China on Friday evening.
The program insulted and attacked China and Chinese people maliciously, Geng said, adding the program moderator's remarks were full of discrimination, prejudice and provocation against China and other ethnic groups, completely deviating from the media professional ethics.
"We strongly condemn it, while the Foreign Ministry of China and the Chinese Embassy in Stockholm have lodged solemn representations and strong protests to the Swedish side respectively in Beijing and Stockholm," he said.
According to the spokesperson, China also urged responsible people of the program to take immediate measures to eliminate bad influence and China would reserve the right to take further measures.
