Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh), Nov.10 (ANI): Tibetans' Spiritual Leader Dalai Lama on Tuesday said that his visit has been unnecessarily politicised.
"My visit has been unnecessarily politicised. I am here to repay my debt to the people of Tawang," said Dalai Lama said on Tuesday.
China has said that Dalai Lama's latest visit shows his anti-China stance.
Beijing sees the visit as encouraging the Tibetan struggle by undermining Chinese territorial integrity and has slammed it as the Dalai Lama's "scheme to wreck China's relations" with India.
But the Tibetan leader says it is merely a spiritual tour. Beijing calls the Dalai Lama a dangerous "splittist" plotting Tibetan independence, a charge he denies.
Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh state is the birthplace of Dalai Lama and part of territory Beijing considers as "southern" Tibet. It is at the heart of the border dispute. (ANI)
