BEIJING, July 28 (Xinhua) -- Relevant people in the United States
should stop supporting and conniving with the Dalai Lama and
separatist forces for "Tibet independence," the Foreign Ministry said
here on Monday.

Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao made the remarks when commenting on a
report that Republican presidential candidate John McCain had met
last Friday with the Dalai Lama, who was visiting the United States.

"China is seriously concerned about the report," Liu said, noting the
Tibet issue is China's domestic affair.

China opposed the Dalai Lama conducting separatist activities in any
country with any individual and opposed anyone making use of the
Dalai Lama issue to interfere in China's domestic affairs. The stance
is persistent and clear, Liu said.

He urged relevant people in the United States to abide by the basic
principles of international relations, see clearly the true face of
the Dalai Lama as separating China and destroying social stability
and national unity in Tibet under the cloak of religion and stop
supporting and conniving with the Dalai Lama and the separatist
forces for "Tibet independence," as well as anything interfering in
China's domestic affairs and damaging Sino-U.S. relations.
