Don’t meddle in Tibet, says Chinese official

Kathmandu, November 23:

Vice-minister of the Chinese Communist Party, Liu Hongcai, today said no foreign force should intervene in the internal affairs of Tibet. He made this remark after meeting Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs, KP Oli.

“China has core interest in Tibet. Foreign forces trying to play a role of splitting Tibet is unacceptable to China,” said Hongcai responding to a query with reference to the reports on US agreeing to take up to 5,000 Tibetan refugees.

Foreign Minister Oli said that not much progress has been made to abort or continue the deal of buying aircraft from China. Asked about the pending appointment of envoys, Oli said he would not give any attention to the Maoists’ demand to appoint envoys only after the formation of an interim government.
