Beijing says most Chinese desire political stability

BEIJING -- The Foreign Ministry in Beijing has refused to comment directly on calls for a so-called “Jasmine Revolution” in China but said nothing could shake the majority's desire for political stability and harmony.

Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu sidestepped a reporter's question at a regular press briefing on Tuesday about recent online calls for protests in 13 cities. He said Tuesday the topic wasn't a foreign affairs issue.

But he added that most Chinese people crave social and political stability and want to live and work in peace and contentment.

“This is something that no person or force can shake,” Ma said.
