China against meeting of Obama, Dalai Lama

February 6, 2010

— China expressed “resolute” opposition to President Barack Obama’s planned meeting with the Dalai Lama, saying it would further strain ties between the world powers.

Tibet and the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader are among the issues China views with great sensitivity. China accuses the Dalai Lama of pushing for Tibetan independence, which he denies.

China warned late Friday that such meetings could further undermine relations with the U.S. Just a week ago, China cut some military ties with the U.S. and threatened sanctions against American companies involved in a planned arms sale to Taiwan.

Obama is scheduled to meet the Dalai Lama in Washington on Feb. 17-18.

The Poser got his trophy pulled down in Mentang and now he has China mad at him. What's next? The dollar 'Bent' prints is going to be worthless? Maybe they can find common ground in Iran. Iran is that aryan named state that sells petro to China isn't it?

Maybe the Chinese Premier could retaliate by meeting with Leonard Peltier.
