Beijing announces 2008 Olympic torch relay will pass through Taiwan

Post  sangbmt on Fri Jan 07, 2011 3:55 am

BEIJING (AP) _ Organizers for the 2008 Beijing Olympics announced Thursday what will be the longest torch relay in the history of the Games, tracing a route that covers five continents and makes politically sensitive stops in Taiwan and Tibet.

At a ceremony attended by senior members of China's ruling Communist Party and the International Olympic Committee, organizers said the route will cover 137,000 kilometres, last 130 days and reach Mount Everest.

``It will be a relay that will cover the longest distance and be most inclusive and involve the most people in Olympic history,'' said Liu Qi, head of Beijing's Olympic organizing committee.

The relay is the latest grand plan associated with an Olympics that organizers and IOC officials have said should set a new standard for the Games. But it also takes the Games into politically tricky terrain.

Stops in Taiwan and Tibet, where Mount Everest towers, have generated controversy ever since Beijing telegraphed its intentions to include them on the route years ago. Taiwan has resisted Beijing's overtures _ and sometimes threats _ to unify after splitting amid civil war while China's often harsh 57-year rule over Tibet has been widely criticized.
