TibetThe Chinese foreign ministry Monday criticised statements issued by foreign officials on Tibet, and urged those countries to stop interfering in China's internal affairs.

"Tibetan affairs are totally China's domestic affairs," Xinhua quoted ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying as saying.

Hua said that recently, politicians from the US, the European Union and Canada had disregarded facts, confused right and wrong and groundlessly accused China on Tibet-related issues.

She said the comments were "rude interferences" in China's internal affairs and Beijing was strongly dissatisfied with them and resolutely opposed those acts.

The spokesperson said Tibet has made great progress in politics, economy, culture and other fields since 1951, and that the region is widely recognized by the international community.

She urged relevant sides to respect China's sovereignty and no longer do anything to interfere in the country's internal affairs.

If China were to respect sovereignty and integrity of its own land, they should respect its minority population. Minority should be given equal human rights as the Hans. They must not be left out and given religious, educational, cultural and above all fundamental human rights.

I think the realistic approach would be to let the international media enter into Chinese occupied Tibet and see for themselves what's covered behind these blame games and cliches we have been hearing from the PRC.
