New Delhi: China has reportedly protested a weekend meeting between the Dalai Lama and the US coordinator for Tibetan affairs, saying on Monday that “no external forces have the right to interfere” in the affairs of Tibet.

US special coordinator for Tibetan issues Uzra Zeya, who is also the US undersecretary for civilian security, democracy and human rights, met Sunday with exiled spiritual leader of Tibet the Dalai Lama.

The representative of the Dalai Lama in Washington Namgyal Choedup, who attended the meeting, said, "Undersecretary Urza Zeya reiterated the continued attention and support for Tibetan issues by the U.S. administration."

The Chinese Embassy in New Delhi tweeted that “China firmly opposes any form of contact between foreign officials and the "Tibetan independence" forces.”

Penpa Tsering, leader of the Central Tibetan Administration, also attended the said meeting, according to reports.
