China accuses EU of interfering in domestic issues over Tibet
The Chinese foreign ministry has accused the European Union of
interfering in its internal affairs by issuing a statement on the
recent unrest in Tibet. A Chinese government spokeswoman in Bejing
emphasised that Tibet was a domestic issue and that no foreign
country or international organisation had the right to interfere.
EU foreign ministers had issued a joint statement on Saturday, in which
they called for an end to the violence and demanded that arrested
persons be treated according to international standards. The
ministers also called on China to grant journalists free access to
Pro-independece demonstrations and unrest erupted in Tibet on
March 10, the 49th anniversary of a failed Tibetan uprising against
Chinese rule. The Chinese government claims 19 people were killed in
the recent violence in the capital Lhasa but the Tibetan government-
in-exile said about 140 people were killed.
