To sweep it under the carpet
Notesnews - Bill Clinton last night walked into a storm over China's treatment of dissidents as he began an historic nine day visit, the first by a United States President since the Tiananmen square massacre in 1989. Stepping off a long red carpet before the south gate to the northern city of Xian, the first stop on his tour, Mr Clinton invoked his stock image of a common Sino-American endeavour for the 21st century. He said commitment to human dignity and freedom was as "vital to the strength and success" of China as it was to America. [John Gittings, The Guardian, June 26 1998]
