News Story: China warns India over Dalai's visit to disputed area

BEIJING, April 12 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday warned India it would take further measures to safeguard its territorial sovereignty and national security following offensive remarks made by the Dalai Lama while he was visiting a disputed zone in the east part of the China-India border area.

According to media reports, an Indian official also repeatedly made inappropriate comments regarding China and the border dispute.

These recent actions indicate that the Dalai Lama's trip has gone beyond the so-called "religious activities" as claimed by India, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a routine press conference.

India has violated its solemn commitment on Tibet-related issues, which will have a detrimental impact on the proper resolution of territorial disputes through negotiation, Lu added.
