Principle on dialogue with Dalai Lama unchanged
Adjust font size:

Qin said the series of public activities of the Dalai clique both at home and overseas showed per se they had connections with the riots.

"We cannot simply believe what Dalai Lama has said but see what he really has done", Qin said, adding that the Dalai Lama should rethink what he has really done and make efforts to create conditions for dialogue with the central government.

Facts are facts and will neither be distorted nor covered up, more evidence will released as the investigation proceeds forward, Qin promised.

On UK's Prime Minister Gordon Brown's remarks on his willingness to meet Dalai Lama, Qin said China is "seriously concerned".

China strongly demanded that the UK fully recognize Dalai Lama's "true face", and not to render any support in any form to him and his secessionist activities, Qin said.

Qin said foreign media have great concern over the riots, and wrote plenty of news stories, some are very objective yet some are seriously against the facts and what truly happened.

China hopes media, whether their journalists are on the spot or outside the area, could respect the truth, hold firm the professional spirits for news coverage, and report the riots in an "objective, just and responsible" manner.

Qin said China fully understands that foreign media and journalists' need and eagerness to cover the news on Tibet situation, and the work on organizing foreign journalists to report in Lhasa is under preparation.

Qin briefed the city has now basically returned to order.
