China protests Obama's meeting with Dalai Lama

Source: PressTV§ionid=351020404

China says US President Barack Obama's meeting with Tibetan exiled leader, the Dalai Lama, has seriously harmed ties between Washington and Beijing.

"The US action seriously interfered in Chinese internal affairs, seriously hurt the feelings of China's people and seriously harmed China-US relations," Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said in a statement.

The Chinese foreign ministry also summoned the US ambassador following the Dalai Lama's meeting with Obama.

It also said China is strongly displeased with the meeting, adding that it expects Washington to put bilateral relations back on a healthy course.

Beijing says the meeting suggests that Washington has violated its repeated acceptance that Tibet is a part of China.

Beijing regards Dalai Lama as a separatist, accusing him of advocating Tibet's independence from Chinese rule.

The Dalai Lama rejects the accusation, and says he wants partial autonomy for the Himalayan region.

Relations between Beijing and Washington are at a fragile state.

China has already reduced its military cooperation with the Pentagon over USD 6.4 billion worth of US arms sales to Taiwan.

Relations between China and the United States have gone from bad to worse over a number of issues. Analysts say such talks have damaged already strained ties between the two countries.
