NAN – China on Monday, July 14, 2015 voiced its opposition to a senior U.S. official meeting with the Dalai Lama.

“China is strongly displeased by and opposed to a senior U.S. official meeting with the Dalai Lama in disregard to China’s multiple representations,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Hua Chunyingm said in a statement issued on Monday.

Hua’s comments came after U.S. President Obama’s senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, took part in Dalai’s 80th birthday celebrations in New York on Friday.

“We urge the U.S. side to honor its commitment to recognising Tibet as part of China and not supporting ‘Tibet independence’ and take concrete measures to rectify mistakes and undo any harm done,” Hua said.

She called on the U.S. to stop providing any convenience and support to “Tibet independence” forces and not let it interfere with and damage China-U.S. relations.
