Beijing (AP) International Olympic Committee Head Jacques Rogge says he's “very concerned” about the unrest in Tibet and other international issues surrounding this summer's Beijing games.

Rogge is calling for a “rapid peaceful resolution” in Tibet during a brief speech. Rogge was in Beijing to meet with officials from national Olympic committees.

China has faced criticism on issues ranging from its crackdown on unrest in Tibet to its diplomatic policies in Darfur.
