China protests Kadeer, Dalai Lama visit
AP[Thursday, September 10, 2009 17:59]

Prague: China has protested planned addresses by exiled Uighur activist Rebiya Kadeer and the Dalai Lama at a Prague conference on human rights in Asia, the Chinese Embassy said Thursday.

"We have expressed our view that we are against the visit (of Kadeer) because its aim is to promote her separatist views," Embassy spokesman Chen Jian Jun said.

Kadeer and the Dalai Lama are scheduled to participate in Friday's "Peace, Democracy and Human Rights in Asia" conference organized by the Forum 2000 Foundation, an organization established by former Czech President Vaclav Havel.

Beijing accuses Kadeer, who is based in the U.S., of inciting recent riots between Uighurs and members of the dominant Han Chinese group in western Xinjiang province that killed at least 197 people and injured more than 1,700. She denies it.

Chinese authorities also accuse the Tibetan spiritual leader of seeking independence from Communist China. The Dalai Lama, who lives in exile in northern India, insists he merely wants more autonomy for Tibet.

The Czech Foreign Ministry had no immediate comment.

Organizers of the conference said they were not aware of the protest.
