Tibetans-in-exile here on Monday staged a silent
protest against the visit of Chinese External
Affairs Minister in India for a trilateral Foreign Ministers' meet.

The Foreign Ministers of Russia, India and China
will meet in Bangalore on Tuesday (Oct. 27).

The protestors said that the border issue between
the two countries could not be solved till Tibetan issue was solved.

"We believe that there is no border between China
and India so there is no need for a border talk
between China and India. The border is between
India and Tibet. It's very clear. And there is no
way that they can solve the border issue without
solving the Tibetan issue at all," said Servin Golvkar, one of the protestors.

Officials said the two ministers could discuss
issue related to tensions arising from troop
mobilisation along their border and the proposed
visit of Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama to
Arunachal Pradesh's Tawang area.

India has been home to the Dalai Lama since he
fled a failed Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule in 1959.
