China on Tuesday said it was strongly dissatisfied with German Chancellor Angela Merkel's meeting with Dalai Lama.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu made the remarks at a regular press conference on Tuesday, noting that Merkel has ignored China's repeated serious representations and persisted in meeting Dalai Lama who has long been a separatist and political exile engaging in activities aimed at splitting the motherland and sabotaging national unity.

Merkel's meeting with Dalai Lama was not only a rude interference into China's internal affairs and strongly hurt the feelings and emotions of the Chinese people, but also gravely harmed China-Germany relations, Jiang stressed.

Jiang said, China requested that Germany should safeguard the overall China-Germany relations and the fundamental interests of the two peoples, and take practical and effective measures to eradicate the negative impacts caused by its wrongdoing so as to avoid unnecessary damage to the bilateral relationship.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel met the Dalai Lama at her office on Sept. 23.
