BEIJING, Nov. 13 (People's Daily Online) -- A Foreign Ministry spokesman said Tuesday that China has lodged solemn representations to Japan over anti-China separatist activities recently conducted by the Dalai Lama in Japan.

"We firmly oppose the provision of support by any country or any person for the Dalai Lama's anti-China separatist activities," spokesman Hong Lei said at a daily news briefing in reference to a speech the Dalai Lama delivered before members of the Japanese parliament at the upper house members' office building in Tokyo Tuesday morning.

Hong said the Japanese right-wing forces' blatant support for the Dalai Lama's anti-China separatist activities constitutes an infringement upon China's internal affairs, adding that China condemns their action.

"The Dalai Lama is a political exile who has long engaged in anti-China separatist activities under the cloak of religion," Hong said, reiterating that Tibet is an inalienable part of Chinese territory.

The Japanese government's laissez-faire attitude toward the activities of the Dalai Lama and right-wing forces deviates from the principle and spirit of Sino-Japanese strategic relations, Hong said.
