China says using Dalai to reach ulterior motive doomed to fail
Adjust font size:

China said Friday that near 100 countries had already demonstrated their support for China's action in the Tibet riot, noting that attempts of "using Dalai to reach ulterior motive" were doomed to fail.

The governments of almost 100 countries had conveyed to China or demonstrated in public their support for China's action to safeguard the national sovereignty, territorial integrity and stability in Tibet and condemned the violence and those who masterminded the crimes, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said in a written statement.

"It is a clear proof that the international community is on the side of China", the spokesman said.

Qin made the remarks in response to reporters' question concerning US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's meeting with Dalai Lama on Friday in India.

He called Dalai a "chief representative" for the surf system and a political refugee engaged in activities of splitting China and destroying national unity, stressing that China firmly opposes to any encouragement or support for the secessionist attempts of Dalai's clique which violate the basic principles of international relations.

"It won't establish any moral authority at all," Qin noted.

Pelosi was reported as calling for pressing China on the Tibet issue.
