China says meeting of Tibetan exiles will “Get Nowhere”

Dharamsala, November 13: China said Thursday a meeting of Tibetan exiles in India next week would “get nowhere”, saying the participants did not represent the views of most Tibetans. China also warned India from allowing such separatist activities on its soil.

"The people planning or attending this meeting do not represent the majority of the Chinese people. Their separatist attempts will get nowhere," AFP reported Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang telling reporters in Beijing.

“The Chinese government is solemnly against any international activities aimed at splitting China,” Qin said in response to a question on Beijing's attitude toward the gathering at a regularly scheduled new conference.

Many exiles are impatient with the Dalai Lama's call for "meaningful autonomy" for his homeland and there are growing calls for outright independence from China.

"The Indian government has made solemn commitments on several occasions that (it) does not allow any activities on its soil aimed at dividing (China)," Qin said, when asked about the meeting at the press briefing. "We hope that this commitment can be fulfilled," Qin added.

More than 500 leading Tibetan exiles will gather for a “special meeting” in Dharamsala, which serves as the base for the Tibetan Government-in-exile, next week to discuss the future of their freedom movement.

The meeting is the largest of its kind in 60 years and was called by the exiled Tibetan leader, the Dalai Lama in response to lack of any signs of progress in the dialogue process and the worsening state of affairs within Tibet following widespread anti-China protests that broke out in the region earlier this year.

The Dalai Lama last month said he was losing “faith and trust” in dealing with Beijing for a negotiated settlement over the future of Tibet. The Dalai Lama complained, even after pursuing his middle-way policy of seeking “real and meaningful” autonomy for Tibet for a long time, there hasn’t been any positive response from the Chinese side.

The gathering will be held Nov. 17 to 22.

India, which shares close historical, cultural and religious ties with Tibet, has been home to more than 100,000 Tibetan refugees after the Dalai Lama, followed by thousands of Tibetans fled to India in 1959 following a failed anti-China uprising in the region.

The latest round of talks between Beijing and representatives of the Dalai Lama ended inconclusively this month, with Beijing emphatically ruling out every Tibetan proposal for a greater autonomy within the constitutional framework of PRC.
