(BN06) BEIJING, CHINA (AUGUST 28, 2007) (REUTERS) MERKEL WALKING TO PODIUM TO GIVE SPEECH (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL SAYING: "The topic of human rights is for us, from our perspective, of key importance because it basically has to do with the question of whether every person in every country enjoys inalienable rights which we believe belong to freedom and dignity. This includes freedom of religion and freedom of expression. This means we must break down these human rights which are sometimes formulated somewhat abstractly, and this means in effect nothing more than that the dignity of every single person cannot be divided and that nobody has the right to put one person above another." AUDIENCE ASKING QUESTIONS (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL SAYING: "I also believe that this discussion will gain momentum, especially in the coming months. China is preparing itself for the Olympic Games and the whole world will be looking at China in a way that for many years was not the case. And this is an enormous chance for China. You have too see this, China can present itself -- never again will so many millions of people be looking to Peking as during the Olympic Games. But people will also be looking to see what China is doing on the road to freedom of expression and press freedom." MERKEL TAKING QUESTIONS FROM AUDIENCE (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL SAYING: "China has played its part regarding Sudan. You know there are terrible human rights abuses in Darfur and simply because China has a very close economic relationship with Sudan, it has a high level of political influence on the government there, and China has used this over the last months."
