Beijing: Marking the 60th anniversary of “peaceful liberation” of Tibet, China on Tuesday vowed to fight against “separatist” activities of the Dalai Lama and crush any attempt to undermine stability in the region.

“We should fight against separatist activities by the Dalai group, rely on cadres and people of all ethnic groups, seek long-term policies and take measures that address the root cause, and completely destroy any attempt to undermine stability in Tibet and national unity of the motherland,”, Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping said. Social stability provides the very basis for leapfrog development and a prosperous life for people of all ethnic groups in Tibet, Xi, who is widely expected to succeed President Hu Jintao next year, said addressing a rally in Lhasa celebrating the 60th anniversary since China consolidated its authority over the remote Himalayan region. The rally, which included a military parade and cultural presentations, was held at the square opposite the famous Potala Palace in the Tibetan provincial capital Lhasa, which was the official residence of the Dalai Lama before he fled to India in 1959.

Xi said people of all ethnic groups in Tibet have stood firm in the fight against separatism. (PTI)
