Q: Recently, China lodged solemn representations with the UK over the meeting between UK leaders including Prime Minister Cameron with Dalai. Will the China-UK high-level exchanges be affected? How do you view the current China-UK relations?
A: China has made its solemn position clear. The UK's act severely interfered in China's internal affairs, sent a wrong signal to "Tibet Independence" forces, and hurt the feelings of the Chinese people. China's Foreign Ministry and Embassy in London have raised solemn representations with the UK side both in Beijing and London. We demand the UK to take China's position seriously, stop condoning and supporting anti-China "Tibet Independence" forces, and immediately take effective measures to eliminate negative impact, so as to safeguard the overall China-UK relations with concrete actions.
