China firmly opposed any meetings between the Dalai Lama and foreign officials in any form, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu said Tuesday.
"China's position on the Tibet issue is clear and consistent," Jiang told a press briefing Tuesday replying to a question on a recent meeting between US officials and the Dalai Lama.
According to media reports, three top aides to US President Barack Obama, met the Dalai Lama in northern India on Monday.
"We are firmly opposed to the Dalai Lama's engagement in separatist activities against China in any country and in any name or identity. We oppose any force making use of this issue to interfere with China's internal affairs," Jiang said.
"The US side is very clear about China's position on this issue," Jiang said when asked about a possible meeting between the US president and the Dalai Lama.
