China warns India
China warns India. Yes it’s true. Everyone is well aware of not so good relations between China and Dalai Lama. China has today warned India against allowing the Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal Pradesh saying, “it would cause “serious damage” to the bilateral ties and peace in the “disputed” border region”. China has given serious warning to India as they do not want India to welcome Dalai Lama.
Dalai Lama is expected to visit Arunachal Pradesh this year
As per recent reports, Dalai Lama will visit Arunachal Pradesh this year. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told the media that
“China is gravely concerned over information that India has granted permission to the Dalai to visit Arunachal Pradesh.”
China always claims that Arunachal Pradesh as part of Tibet and routinely objects to any visits by top leaders, officials and diplomats to the area. This is not first time China has shown thus kind of behaviour earlier also China shows similar concerns in October last year when India granted permission to the Tibetan spiritual leader to visit Arunachal Pradesh at the invitation of the state government. Geng added that
“China is strongly opposed to the Dalai visiting disputed areas. Geng said China expressed its concern to India through formal channels. He also added that
” India is fully aware of the seriousness of the Dalai issue and thesensitivity of China-India border question. “
“Under such a background if India invites the Dalai to visit to the mentioned territory, it will cause serious damage to peace and stability of border region and China-India relations,” he said.
“We have expressed concerns to the Indian side, urged India to stick to its political commitments and abide by important consensus the two sides have reached on the boundary question, refrain from actions that might complicate the issue, not provide a platform to the Dalai clique and protect the sound and stable development of the Sino-India relations,” he said.
