Pressure Mounts over Rudd's Unanswered Olympics Invitation བོད་སྐད།

Australia's Prime Minister Kavin Rudd has yet to make the decision whether to attend the Beijing Olympic opening ceremony. Opposition foreign affairs spokesman Andrew Robb says Rudd should attend for the bilateral interests. After the unrest in Tibet and China's crackdown on Tibetan protesters, several world leaders have announced that they will not attend the Beijing Olympics. Australia's Green Party's leader Bob Brown says he is glad Rudd is holding out. "Hu Jintao should meet the Dalai Lama before the Olympics. If he doesn't, our head of state should stay away. Our Prime Minister should stay away," Brown added.
