BEIJING — China on Tuesday accused foreign governments of interfering in its political system by supportig the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to an imprisoned dissident.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said Tuesday that politicians in some countries were using this peace prize to attack China. "This is not only disrespect for China's judicial system, but also puts a big question mark on their true intentions," he said.

Beijing reacted angrily to Friday's announcement awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo for his more than two decades of advocacy of human rights, calling him a criminal and warning Norway's government that relations would suffer.
