“Amid a row over the Dalai Lama’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, the government on Tuesday asked China not to interfere in its internal affairs, saying it respects the ‘One China’ policy and expects Beijing to reciprocate. Making a statement on the visit of the Dalai Lama to Arunachal Pradesh, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said here that the Tibetan spiritual leader’s visit to the border state is completely religious and no political motive should be ascribed to it. … The Dalai Lama is scheduled to visit Arunachal Pradesh on 6 April during which he will hold religious discourse with devotees in Tawang, Bomdial and other areas. Earlier, the Chinese Foreign Ministry had warned India that the visit of the Dalai Lama to Arunachal Pradesh, which Beijing claims as part of Tibet, will cause ‘serious damage’ to bilateral ties.” (04/04/17)
