China readies for Tibet ‘war’, PM meets Panchen

BEIJING: Chinese premier Wen Jiabao met Beijing-appointed Panchen Lama in Beijing on Friday in the backdrop of top Communist party officials describing the situation in Tibet as “grave”.

The meeting took place after a senior Communist party official advised the government to prepare for “war against secessionist sabotage” by the Dalai Lama.There are clear indications that China has decided to adopt its traditional “strike hard” strategy to stanch the rising wave of dissent among a section of Tibetans. Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported that the police in the western Sichuan province had shot and killed a monk and his brother.

RFA said the 40-year-old monk, Yeshe Rigsal, and his brother, were hiding from police, which was looking for them for participating in an anti-government demonstration on January 23. Their bodies were found, shot dead by the police, RFA said, while also reporting another self-immolation by a monk in Qinghai province.

The Communist party’s regional chief for Tibet, Chen Quanguo, indicated the forthcoming meeting of the party’s national congress in November will adopt a programme for a “decisive battle” against “revolting monks”.

The official Tibet Daily quoted Chen as saying the fight against the Dalai Lama clique is “long-term, complicated and sometimes even acute”.

Another paper, Global Times, reported a statement from Xu Zhitao, an official with the United Front Work Department of the Communist Party Central Committee, saying that “secessionists led by the Dalai Lama appeared more determined to plot conspiracies this year”.Global Times also said the Tibet issue was discussed at a meeting between India’s external affairs minister S M Krishna and Zhou Yongkang, a senior party leader.

“Separately, during a meeting with Krishna in Beijing on Wednesday, Zhou Yongkang, said that the question concerns China’s national interests and that the Chinese government will crack down on secessionists and safeguard its territorial integrity,” the paper said.
