BEIJING. March 22. VOSTOK MEDIA – China strongly condemns the attacks on PRC diplomatic missions overseas organized in support of the demonstrations in Tibet, said in the official statement of the PRC Foreign Ministry.
The demonstrations started on March 10, the day of the 49th anniversary of the uprising in Lhasa that ended with exile of the Dalai Lama. Since May 10, the assaults on Chinese embassies and consulates have occurred in the USA, Canada, India, Britain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Australia.
China considers, the massacres in Tibet that led to killing of 13 people were organized by the “Tibet independence” forces that consider the exiled Dalai Lama currently staying in India the head of the “Tibetan government in exile.”
The governments of some countries where attacks on Chinese missions occurred – the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Australia in particular – expressed their regrets and apologized for failing to protect the missions from being assaulted, RIA Novosti reports.
