China warns India for the second time in a row with “serious damages’ in bilateral ties if it allows Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal Pradesh. Dalai Lama will visit Arunachal Pradesh from 4 to 13 April. China who considers Arunchal Pradesh as a part of South Tibet and has a long Tibet border dispute is being opposing Dalai Lama’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh. Dalai Lama China war takes ugly turn indulging India in it.
“We are seriously concerned about the news. On the eastern section of the China-India border, China’s position is clear and consistent,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told media in Beijing and asked New Delhi to honour ‘political pledges’ on the Tibet issue.
“The Dalai clique has long been engaging in separatist activities with inglorious record. India should be very clear with the true nature of the Dalai clique. But despite this India still invited the Dalai Lama to visit the region. This will have serious damage on bilateral relations,” Mr Lu said.
China had earlier also opposed Dalai Lama’s visit to India on which it said, “China is gravely concerned over information that India has granted permission to the Dalai to visit Arunachal Pradesh,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang had said on March 3.
“Such visits will have deep damage on China India relations. We have asked India to stick to its political pledges and not to hurt China-India relations. It will come down to India to make a choice,” he said.
“China firmly opposes the Dalai Lama carrying out any activities in the relevant region and we have expressed our concerns to the Indian side. We urge India to stick to its political statements, respect the consensus and avoid doing anything that might further complicate the matter,” he added.
On this continued opposing of China on Dalai Lama’s visit, Union Minister of Home affairs of India Kiran Rijiju said that India has never interfered in China’s internal, there China should also stop interfering in India’s internal matter.
