China: Occupy Wall Street’s issues worth thought


BEIJING (AP) — China’s foreign ministry says the Occupy Wall Street movement highlights issues that are worth considering.

But spokesman Liu Weimin said at a regular briefing Monday that debates generated by the protests on Wall Street should be conducive to global economic growth.

Liu did not elaborate. The state-run Global Times newspaper says in an editorial that the Chinese should "calmly observe the protest movement and the global situation."

The movement began a month ago Monday in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park with loosely organized protests against what demonstrators consider unbridled corporate greed.

It has swelled to include demonstrations on Saturday in the U.S. and Europe.
