“On October 29, the Canadian Prime Minister and Governor-General met with the Dalai Lama respectively. This gravely violates the fundamental norms governing international relations and the position reiterated by the Canadian government on many occasions that it recognizes Tibet as an inseparable part of the Chinese territory. It is a blatant interference in China’s internal affairs and has severely hurt the feelings of the Chinese people and will gravely undermine the relationship between China and Canada. The Chinese Embassy hereby expresses its strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition to this.
The Chinese side urges Canada to take immediate and effective measures to remove the serious impact of its erroneous act, stop supporting and conniving at the separatist activities of the Tibet independence forces, stop interfering with China’s internal affairs and take concrete steps to safeguard the China-Canada relationship.”
