Chinese media has called on the US and Europe to summon political courage to overcome their debt crises, or global economic recovery will be threatened. The call was made in an editorial in the People's Daily newspaper on Monday.

The editorial warned that if the US, Europe and other advanced economies fail to shoulder their responsibility, it would affect stable development of the global economy. It also said the situation has seriously hurt global investors' confidence in world economic recovery, exacerbating market turmoil.

The Chinese government has so far not commented on US credit rating downgrade, but such media comments decried the potential damage to China's growth and huge holdings of US treasury assets.
