BEIJING, Sept. 20,2008 (Xinhua) -- China on Saturday expressed strong
indignation and opposition over a legislation on Tibet recently approved
by the U.S. Senate.

"The Tibet issue is China's internal affair, so is the Chinese
government's contact and dialogue with the Dalai Lama," Chinese Foreign
Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said.

She made the remarks when responding to a question on a legislation
approved by the U.S. Senate on Friday, which reportedly urged the
Chinese government to begin earnest negotiation with the Dalai Lama on
the future of Tibet.

"We urge the U.S. Senate to abide by the basic rules of international
relations, stop supporting and conniving with the Dalai Lama and
separatist forces for 'Tibet independence', and immediately stop
wrongful remarks and deeds that interfere into China's internal affairs
and harm the China-U.S. relations," said Jiang.
