China on Wednesday lodged a diplomatic protest with the US over a Congressional delegation’s meeting with the Dalai Lama in India, saying the move violated America’s commitment not to support Tibet’s independence.

“The meeting has sent very wrong signal to the world about supporting Tibetan independence,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

“The meeting violated the US government’s commitment not to support Tibet’s independence,” Geng said.

US Congressmen should stop all kinds of contacts with the Dalai Lama, he said.

The Congressional delegation headed by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi met Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Tuesday in Dharamshala.

China views the Dalai Lama as a separatist working to split Tibet from China. It objects to any world leader or government official meeting the 81-year-old leader.

        This only exposes the fear factor and how much China is under fear and unable to digest the World Leaders meeting Dalai Lama and it is nothing but jittery ??? If China is confident that Tibet belongs to its territory there is no need to fear about let whomsoever can meet Dalai Lama and Did China feels that Dalai Lama will influence the World Leaders which is the reason that China Leaders are Protesting for any one of them meeting him or welcoming him to their place as an Religious Leader ???
