1. .....scarcely mentioned human rights in his speech.......

......Bush, father of the current U.S. president and a self-described "old friend" of China, scarcely mentioned human rights in his speech at a Chinese university, praising the Beijing government and saying Sino-U.S. ties would be this century's most important relationship.
