July 17,2017--Q: The office of the President of Botswana announced Thursday that the president will meet with Dala Lama during his visit to the country next month. What is China's response to this? How will the visit affect China's investment in the country?
A: The 14th Dalai is a political exile who has long been engaged in anti-China separatist activities under the cloak of religion with the attempt to split Tibet from China. China is firmly opposed to Dalai's trip to any country for activities aimed at splitting China in any capacity or name, and contact with any official in any form in any country.
China's stance is clear. We hope relevant country can see clear the nature of Dalai, faithfully respect China's core concern and make correct decision on the relevant issue.
