Peace-loving Chinese and people worldwide had "seen through a tiny minority of people who intended to sabotage the August Beijing Olympics", and the plot to hit the Games would never succeed, Sha Zukang, the United Nations deputy secretary-general, said in Beijing on Thursday.

Sha made the statement at the ongoing Forum on Climate Change and Science and Technology Innovation when commenting on recent attacks of Olympic torch relay by "pro-Tibet independence" activists. "These acts have sharpened the eyes of the people both home and abroad."

He said the Games were "really a big matter for both Chinese and world people". The Chinese diplomat added that under the support of the whole nation, he was fully confident the Games would be the best in history.

Sha also criticized some foreign media that insisted China gradually would become the world's top carbon emitter.

"I can't say they are wrong, but I'm sure that they just reported part of the things, or even distorted the facts. The media just say what they want, but whether it's correct or not is another matter."

Sha said there were indeed insufficient areas concerning environmental protection in China but the government had adopted many effective measures that would greatly improve the situation.
