China voices firm opposition to contact between India, Dalai Lama
update:December 19,2016
Dec. 19, 2016 -- China on Friday voiced strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to contact between India and the Dalai Lama.
"The Indian side insisted on the arrangement despite China's solemn representations and strong opposition. China is strongly dissatisfied and firmly against it," said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang at a daily press briefing.
Geng's remarks came after the Dalai Lama participated in a meeting in India's New Delhi earlier this week with Indian President Pranab Mukherjee.
He said the Dalai Lama is a political exile who attempts to split Tibet from Chinese territory under the cloak of religion. China firmly opposes any contact between the Dalai Lama and authorities of any country.
Geng urged the Indian side to recognize the separatist nature of the Dalai Lama clique, show respect for China's core interests and major concerns, and take effective measures to clear up the negative impact of the Dalai Lama's visit to avoid disrupting China-India relations.
