Dharamshala -- Britain's foreign secretary has
called for "autonomy and human rights in Tibet"
during a meeting with his Chinese counterpart
Yang Jiechi in Beijing on Wednesday, BBC reported.

Speaking on his first visit to China since
becoming foreign secretary, Mr William Hague said
London had long-standing concerns about human rights in Tibet.

"We want to see long-term stability for Tibet,
which in our view implies work on human rights and greater autonomy," he added.

He has told his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi
he wants to build a close working relationship between the two countries.

Mr Hague met Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao later on
Wednesday, before travelling to Japan on Thursday.
