More foreign officials have voiced their objection to using the Tibet issue to boycott the Beijing Olympic Games.

The Senegalese people know about the recent riot in Lhasa through the introduction of the Chinese ambassador and programs broadcast by China Central Television (CCTV), said Babakar Diagne, director-general of Senegalese National Broadcasting Bureau.

He said the programs clarified the biased report by some Western media and helped the Senegalese people to have a correct understanding about the Tibet issue.

Normann Paech, German Left Party's foreign policy spokesperson, said China has made remarkable achievements in economy and social rights despite some short comings in this regard.

Former Togolese Prime Minister Yawovi Madji Agboyibo said Sunday it is a "clumsy" act to interfere in China's territorial integrity involving Tibet.

Agboyibo added he believes the Beijing Olympics will not be boycotted because of the issue.

The 29th Olympic Games is scheduled to kick off in Beijing on Aug. 8. The Olympic torch is currently on a global relay. The relay concluded its fifth leg in Paris on Monday and will continue in San Francisco of the United States.
