BEIJING — China on Feb 6 voiced opposition to any country receiving the Dalai Lama and interfering in China’s internal affairs in the name of issues regarding Tibet.

“The Dalai Lama is seeking foreign support to realize his political ambition, which would never succeed,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei at a daily press briefing.

US President Barack Obama welcomed the Dalai Lama at a “prayer breakfast” in Washington on Feb 5, but did not meet him directly, according to reports.

“The Dalai Lama is a political exile who has been engaged in secessionist activities under the cloak of religion,” Hong said.
