China asks monks to resist foreign influence
China has asked the Tibetan Buddhist monks to resist influence of “foreign forces” to ensure stability in Tibet.
Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the national advisory body has called on religious figures in Tibet to resist the influence of “foreign forces”, to ensure stability in the autonomous region, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Yu, the official in-charge of China’s minorities, however has not specified the identity of the foreign forces. He made the remarks while visiting Qamdo, Tibet, in the last two days where he visited businesses, hospitals and lamaseries.
China terms the Dalai Lama as a separatist and blames the unrest in the Himalayan region on him.
