Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang’s Regular Press Conference on April 17, 2017
Q: After the Dalai Lama’s visit to the disputed territories in the east section of the China-India border, the Indian government clarified that there’s no change to the position of Tibet being part of China and will continue to seek a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable solution to the boundary question. What’s your comment on this?
A: I have noted relevant statements. For some time, due to reasons known to all, the political foundation for China-India relations has been damaged, casting a shadow over bilateral relations and the boundary negotiations. What is imperative now is for the Indian side to take concrete actions to honor its solemn promises on Tibet-related issues as well as the important consensus reached by the two sides on settling the boundary issue, in particular never again using the 14th Dalai Lama to undermine China’s core interests, so as to create a good atmosphere for greater mutual trust between the two countries and proper settlement of the boundary question.
