Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qin Gang on Saturday evening urged the United States to correct its mistakes after President Barack Obama met with the Dalai Lama.
“We once again urge the U.S. side to correct mistakes,” Qin said in a press release.
He said the United States should stop conniving and supporting anti-China, secessionist force which pursues “Tibet independence,” halt interference into China’s internal affairs, and adopt measures to offset negative influence, in order to avoid further damage to the China-U.S. relations.
Qin pointed out that Tibet is an inseparable part of China’s territories and that the affairs of Tibet are totally internal affairs of China.
Qin said the U.S. side has done serious damage to China-U.S. relations by allowing the Dalai Lama to visit the country and meet with the U.S. leader despite objection of China.
