Oversea Tibetans: Americans have serious prejudice against Tibet

Oversea Tibetans in the U.S. deemed Americans have serious misunderstanding and prejudice against China's Tibet and people there, according to a current report from the U.S. Qiaobao. Some Tibetans living in U.S. said while contacting with local people they found many of them have misunderstanding and prejudice against Tibet and Tibetan people. Dbyangscan Lhamo, sponsor as well as chairman of the Council of China Overseas Tibetan Association said in the inaugural ceremony of the association on Feb. 21 that many of her American friends sympathized with Tibetans because they thought...

Commentary: Facts speak louder than words

The Dalai Lama group published an article, China's Claim that 'Old Tibet' was a Feudal Serfdom is Fiction, on Jan. 4, 2010. The article claimed that before 1949, "Tibet was neither an ideal society nor a feudal serf system", describing old Tibet as a beggar-free rule-of-law society without famine in which tenants were wealthy and the economy was self-sufficient. The article claimed that, compared with China at the same time -- and even China of today -- Tibet was a "far more civil society".

Foreign media: what damage will Obama-Dalai meeting cause?

Since Barack Obama has been in power, the meeting between him and the Dalai Lama has become a cloud hanging above the China-U.S. relationship. A lot of Americans claim that it is a matter of adhering to U.S. values, but China emphasizes it is a provocation against its national sovereignty. It seems both sides will not compromise on the Dalai Lama issue, according to reports from the "Global Times" newspaper published on February 21.

What is the Dalai Lama's intention of meeting with Obama?

Long has the Dalai Lama been dealing with the central government under the banner of peace. Early this February, 15 months after the Dalai Lama's announcement of suspension of talks, the Dalai Lama's private envoys Lodi Gyari and Kelsang Gyaltsen visited Beijing and started a new round of negotiation with the central government. This movement by the Dalai clique seemed to reveal the Dalai Lama's wish of settling his future through peaceful talk.

Voice from Chinese netizens over Obama-Dalai Lama's meeting

Some Chinese netizens wrote down their comments to criticize U.S. President Barack Obama's meeting with the Dalai Lama in Washington on Thursday. Netizen "Chinese" said: "Despite China's firm and repeated opposition, U.S. President Barack Obama met with the Dalai Lama in Washington on Thursday which means to interfere in China's internal affairs. We Chinese firmly support our government's solemn stances over this issue."

Obama might further disorient Dalai Lama

The exiled 14th Dalai Lama got so intoxicated and disoriented on an international occasion November 22, 2009, that he even publicly stated he was the "son of India", in that he "has fed on Indian food" since fleeing China half a century ago, thus positioning "His Holiness" as an object of the worldwide ridicule. On the surface, the Dalai Lama still keeps the common sense that he shouldn't bite the hand that is feeding him. But perhaps, it is the plausible reason to explain why he could turn to bite the hand that has fed him.

China urges U.S. to withdraw decision on Obama-Dalai Lama meeting

China urges the United States to immediately withdraw a decision of arranging U.S. President Barack Obama to meet with the Dalai Lama, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said here Friday. China has lodged solemn representation with the United States over such a decision, Ma said in a statement when responding to relevant questions. "China firmly opposes the Dalai Lama visiting the United States and U.S. leaders' contacting with him," Ma said, adding China's position on the issue has been "consistent and clear."

Overseas Chinese slam Dalai Lama's attempt to split China

Some overseas Chinese criticized U.S. President Barack Obama's meeting with the Dalai Lama in Washington on Thursday, and pointed out the real intention of the Dalai Lama's hobnobbing with the West. Du Ping, a Singaporean expert on international relations, told Xinhua that the Dalai Lama has made a point of meeting Western political leaders. His real intention is to keep the so-called "Tibetan issue" in the news, raise funds and seek bigger space for maneuvering.

Unwise for Obama to meet Dalai Lama: U.S.-China expert

It is "unwise" for President Barak Obama to meet with the Dalai Lama because the session would negatively affect American ties with China, says an expert on U.S.-China relations. Instead, Obama should spend additional time with Chinese leaders and focus on more important issues instead of harming U.S.-China relations by meeting with the Dalai Lama, Fred Teng, a member of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, told Xinhua on Tuesday.

What's behind Obama-Dalai Lama meeting?

Despite China's firm and repeated opposition, U.S. President Barack Obama met with the Dalai Lama in Washington on Thursday. Obama pledged to build "a positive, cooperative and comprehensive U.S.-China relationship for the 21st century" during his high-profile China visit last November, but his pledge has failed to hold water merely three months later. International observers hold that, through the meeting, Obama wants to achieve his multiple political goals at home and abroad, while the Dalai Lama pursues his illusion to split China in the guise of religion. Then what's the real motive for...
