China expressed early Friday morning strong indignation and opposition
over a resolution on Tibet adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives.

The resolution proposed by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "flagrantly
distorted the history and reality of Tibet", said Chinese Foreign
Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu in a statement.

Jiang said the resolution, which condemned for no reason at all the
legal measures taken by the government of Tibet Autonomous Region to
deal with the violent crimes in Lhasa last month, was "a rude
interference into China's internal affairs and seriously hurt the
feelings of the Chinese people."

"China is strongly indignant and opposed to this resolution," she said.

There was sufficient evidence to prove that the Lhasa riots were
masterminded by the Dalai Lama clique, and staged by "Tibet
independence" forces in and out of China, she said.

What happened in Lhasa on March 14 was not at all "peaceful
demonstration" or "non-violence" activities as labeled by the Dalai
clique, but naked serious crimes of violence, Jiang said.

Some U.S. Congress members utterly confounded right and wrong by turning
a blind eye to the mobs who conducted assaulting, looting and arson in
Lhasa and leaving the Dalai clique, who masterminded the violent crimes,
free from condemnations, but instead blaming the Chinese government and
the Chinese people, Jiang said.

She said those U.S. lawmakers also harbored hidden motives.

"Here we sternly warn those U.S. Congress members: The more youdo to
shield the Dalai clique and disrupt the Beijing Olympics, the more
thoroughly the true colors of them will be exposed, and the more Chinese
people are determined to safeguard stability and ethnic unity in Tibet
and host a successful Olympic Games," Jiang said.

"We demand the U.S. Congress see clearly the Dalai Lama's true color of
engaging in activities of splitting China in the cloak of religion,
realize the Dalai clique's nature of real antagonism and violence under
the disguise of seeking dialogue and peace...and immediately stop
wrongful remarks and deeds that interfere into China's internal affairs,
hurt the Chinese people's feeling and harm the China-U.S. relations,"
said Jiang.
