Two French secretaries of state Tuesday hailed the successful organization of the Beijing Paralympics and the city's heavy investment on facilities for the disabled people.

Bernard Laporte, secretary of state for Health, Youth and Sports, and Valerie Letard, secretary of state for Labor, Labor Relations and Solidarity, who are in Beijing for the Paralympics, said the opening ceremony was "very moving."

People with physical disabilities should be considered during infrastructure planning, they said in a statement of the Ministry of Health, Youth and Sports.

Laporte and Letard expressed their respect for the 4,000 Paralympics athletes, saying they are examples of self-surpass. They also congratulated French medalists at the Games.

A total of 121 French athletes are now in Beijing for competition in 13 events.
