China urges concrete U.S. actions to maintain healthy ties after Obama-Dalai meeting

BEIJING, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- China urged the
United States early Friday morning to take
concrete actions for healthy development of
bilateral ties after U.S. President Barack Obama's meeting with the Dalai Lama.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said in a
statement it was regardless of China's repeated
solemn representations for the U.S. to
obstinately arrange the meeting between Obama and the Dalai Lama.

"The U.S. act grossly violated the norms
governing the international relations, and ran
counter to the principles set forth in the three
China-U.S. joint communiques and the China-U.S. joint statement," he said.

It also went against the repeated commitments by
the U.S. government that the U.S. recognizes
Tibet as part of China and gives no support to "Tibet independence," he said.

Ma demanded the U.S. seriously consider China's
stance, immediately adopt measures to wipe out
the baneful impact and stop conniving and
supporting anti-China separatist forces that seek "Tibet independence."

The U.S. should stop interfering in China's
internal affairs and make concrete actions to
maintain healthy and steady growth of China-U.S. relations, he said.

Obama met with the Dalai Lama at the White House Map Room Thursday local time.
