A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said here Tuesday that the Dalai Lama is a "political refugee engaged in activities of splitting China and destroying national unity."

"The Dalai Lama is not a pure religious person, but a political refugee engaged in activities of splitting China and destroying national unity under the camouflage of religion," spokesman Qin Gang said.

According to Qin, Dalai always delusively claims Tibet as a nation occupied by China, denying the fact that the region has been a part of China in history.

Dalai has refused to recognize the current political system in Tibet and attempted to establish the so-called "Greater Tibet Area" which covers nearly a quarter of Chinese territory but has never really existed in the history.

Furthermore, Dalai has also demanded Chinese government to pullback all the armed force from the "Greater Tibet Area" and withdraw the non-Tibetan population from the area, the spokesman said.

The "Tibetan government in exile" forged by the Dalai clique has also proposed in the so-called "the Charter of Tibetan in-Exile" to establish a so-called a "Federal Democratic Self-governing Republic" in the Tibetan region, Qin added.

"The remarks and actions made by Dalai in the recent decades have shown he has never given up his separatist efforts," Qin noted.

On March 14, riots involving beating, smashing, looting and burning broke peace in Lhasa.

Rioters set fires at more than 300 locations, including residences and 214 shops, smashed and burned 56 vehicles, and attacked schools, banks, hospitals, shops, government offices, utilities and state media offices.

Qin said that the Lhasa riot was organized, premeditated, masterminded and incited by the Dalai Lama clique, which once exposed once again the separatist nature of the Dalai Lama clique and the hypocritical and fraudulent nature of its so-called "peace" and "non-violence" claims.
