China premier Wen Jiabao urges end to EU arms embargo

China's premier Wen Jiabao has urged the EU to lift its arms embargo on Beijing, at his last EU-China summit before handing over power this year.

The EU embargo was imposed after the violent suppression of the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.

EU sources, quoted ahead of the summit, said "we have agreed to disagree" with China on the issue.

Speaking in Brussels, Mr Wen said "the solution has been elusive over the past 10 years. I deeply regret this".
