Chinese Foreign Ministry comments on Brown's willingness to meet Dalai
China's Foreign Ministry yesterday urged the British side to get a clear
understanding of Dalai Lama's "true face" and offer no support for Dalai and his
secessionist activities, when asked to comment on Prime Minister Gordon Brown's
remarks on his willingness to meet Dalai Lama.
"China is seriously concerned
about the message (Brown's remarks on his willingness to meet Dalai)," Foreign
Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said.
"As we have repeatedly pointed out, Dalai
is a political refugee engaged in activities of splitting China under the
camouflage of religion," Qin said.
The spokesman also accused the Dalai
clique of organizing, premeditating, masterminding and inciting the Lhasa riot,
which "once again exposed Dalai's separatist nature."
