Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Fu Ying called Nobel Peace Prize laureat Liu Xiaobo a "strange" person and asked Sunday why "heroes" who helped resolve Chinese problems were not nominated.

"The Nobel Peace Prize committee was always naming strange people from China," Fu told the World Policy Conference in Marrakech, in what might also be a reference to the Dalai Lama, who won in 1989.
