Friday March 21, 2008
While China came down on protesting Tibetans in Tibet, and Indian government bashed up those protesting in front of Chinese Embassy in India, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Dharamshala, met the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile, and described the situation in Tibet as a challenge to the "conscience of the world" and asked all freedom loving people to speak out against China's "oppression". She said the US Congress will continue to meet the challenge of conscience that Tibet offers. The Dalai Lama, meanwhile, continued to be the butt of Chinese attack and Chinese Ambassador to India Zhang Yan responded by saying, "We oppose any country, any organisation, any person to interfere in China's internal affairs. Tibet is China's internal affair. We don't allow anybody to meddle in China's internal affairs. Any attempt to cause trouble to China is doomed to fail."
