CHINA’S most famous dissident, a Nobel laureate who once declared that he had “no enemies and no hatred”, has died aged 61.

It was during a hunger strike days before the Chinese army crushed the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy movement on June 4, 1989, that Liu Xiaobo, said: “We have no enemies.”

When being tried in 2009 on charges of inciting subversion of state power for helping write Charter 08 — a pro-democracy manifesto — Mr Liu reaffirmed: “I have no enemies and no hatred.”

He was sentenced to 11 years in prison that same year and won the Nobel Peace Prize the following year.

US President Donald Trump paid tribute to Mr Liu, calling him a friend and patriot but refraining from commenting on his death.

“He’s a friend of mine. I have great respect for him,” Mr Trump said in Paris on Thursday. “We’ve gotten to know each other very well. A great leader. He’s a very talented man. I think he’s a very good man. He loves China. I can tell you. He loves China.”
