The door of dialogue still opens to the Dalai Lama, so long as he gives up the position for "Tibet Independence", so long as he recognizes Tibet and Taiwan as inalienable parts of the Chinese territory, said Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Tuesday.
"We can see clearly from these two key issues how hypocritical the Dalai Lama is," said the Premier at a press conference upon conclusion of the annual session of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.
However, Wen noted, China's original proposition is still unchanged. "We mean what we say," he said. "We need to watch what the Dalai Lama does. It is up to his actions."
On March 14, violence involving beating, smashing property, looting and arson broke out in Lhasa. There are ample facts proving the riot was organized, premeditated, masterminded and incited by the Dalai Lama clique, Wen told reporters.
