Opposition to US Tibet Report

Yesterday, a foreign ministry spokesperson expressed the government's strong opposition to the third US presidential report to congress on the "Tibet issue," and said the US should "stop interfering in China's internal affairs."
   
Qin Gang, responding to a question about the report, said that Tibet is a part of China and Tibet affairs are an internal matter.
   
He said the report made irresponsible remarks and "ignored the facts," and violated the basic principles of international relations as well as the three Sino-US joint communiqu├ęs.
   
According to Qin, the government's policy towards the Dalai Lama was clear: if he gives up advocacy of "Tibet independence," stops separatist activities and publicly recognizes Tibet and Taiwan as inalienable parts of China, "we shall contact him for negotiations."
   
Qin said China demands that the US side honor its repeated commitment to recognize Tibet as a part of China, not support "Tibet independence" and stop interfering in China's internal affairs through the "Tibet issue."
   
The US government submitted its first presidential report on the "Tibet issue" to Congress in May 2003, and the second last July.
