Mongolia not to allow future visit by Dalai Lama

Mongolian Foreign Minister Tsend Munkh-Orgil said Tuesday Mongolia will not allow the Dalai Lama to visit the country.


The foreign minister said Dalai's visit to Mongolia will not be allowed by the government in the future, even under the name of religion, according to a report in Today, a leading Mongolian newspaper.

The Dalai Lama, a political exile with ambitions to split Tibet from Chinese territory under the cloak of religion, paid a visit to Mongolia on Nov. 18-23.

Munkh-Orgil expressed regret over the visit's negative impact on China-Mongolia relations.

China has voiced strong dissatisfaction to the Dalai Lama's visit to Mongolia.

In late November, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said China urged Mongolia to recognize the separatist nature of the Dalai Lama clique, show respect to China's core interests and take effective measures to remove the negative impacts of the Dalai Lama's visit in a bid to avoid disturbing the development of China-Mongolia relations.
