Chinese envoy meets MEA official

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 18, 2009

New Delhi, Sep 17 (PTI) Amid sparring between India and China over Dalai Lama’s proposed visit to Arunachal Pradesh, Chinese Ambassador Zhang Yan today met a senior official in the Ministry of External Affairs.

Zhang met Joint Secretary (East Asia) Vijay Gokhale for about 30 minutes, official sources said.

Details of the meeting were not known but it came in the backdrop of sparring between India and China over Dalai Lama’s planned visit to Arunachal Pradesh in November to inaugurate a hospital for which he has donated Rs 20 lakh.

China, which lays claim over Arunachal Pradesh, has expressed objection to the Dalai Lama’s visit there, saying it “further reveals the Dalai clique’s anti-China and separatist essence”.

India, however, has rejected China’s objections, saying the Dalai Lama was free to travel anywhere in this country.
