Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Jianchao' Remarks on Report that Some Foreigners are Discriminated in Beijing

Q: According to a recent report of the South Morning Post, Beijing police take discriminative measures against some foreigners, asking the bars in areas including San Li Tun Street not to serve Africans and Mongolians. Could you confirm? Do you have any comment?

A: The report is totally groundless.

We have checked with the Bureau of Public Security in Beijing, Beijing's police departments including San Li Tun police station have never in any form asked any bar under their jurisdictions not to serve guests from any country or region. At present, the bars in San Li Tun and other areas are doing business and serving foreigners as usual.
