China's top cultural heritage administrator reiterated its objection to auctions of illegally exported Chinese relics, including those looted during wars.

It urged auctioneers to abide by international conventions and to respect the national feelings of people from the countries where the relics were looted.

The State Administration of Cultural Heritage made the statements in response to Bonhams' upcoming auction of two Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) cultural relics.
