China opposes India hosting Dalai Lama in disputed border region: HumSub.TV
China opposes India hosting Dalai Lama in disputed border region: HumSub.TV: China on Friday said it opposes plans by Indian government officials to host Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in a sensitive border region controlled by India but claimed by China.
Indian government representatives told in early March that officials would meet the Dalai Lama while he is on a religious trip to Arunachal Pradesh from April 4 to April 13 and that as a secular democracy they would not stop him from travelling to any part of the country.
China claims the region in the eastern Himalayas as “South Tibet”, and has denounced foreign and even Indian leaders’ visits to the region as attempts to bolster New Delhi’s territorial claims.
The trip by the Dalai Lama, whom the Chinese regard as a dangerous separatist, is expected to ratchet up frictions between New Delhi and Beijing over strategic issues such as China’s growing ties with India’s arch-rival Pakistan.
“China resolutely opposes the 14th Dalai Lama visiting border regions disputed by China and India,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular briefing in Beijing.
China urges India to “avoid taking any actions that would further complicate the border issue, do not provide a platform for the 14th Dalai cliques separatist activities,” he said.
“The Dalai clique has made disgraceful performances on the China-India border issue,” he added. Visits by the Dalai Lama are planned months, if not years, in advance, and approval for the trip predates recent disagreements between China and India.
The Dalai Lama is expected to meet junior home minister Kiren Rijiju, a Arunachal native and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s point man on Tibetan issues, while visiting the Buddhist Tawang monastery.
The Dalai Lama last visited the monastery in 2009. He also briefly stayed there after fleeing Tibet in 1959 following a failed uprising against Chinese rule.
“During the Dalai Lamas last visit to Tawang, he said that the area is part of India. This is untrue and it undermines friendly relations between China and India,” Lian Xiangming, an academic from China’s government-run China Tibetology Research Center, said on March 23 at an event in Beijing.
“Historically, Tawang was under Deprung temple (in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa) and had to make contributions to the regional government, so this means that Tawang is in itself a part of Tibet,” he said.
“Given Tawang is a part of Tibet and Tibet is a part of China, it is hard to say there is any logical problem here.”
