Mongolia should learn lesson from Dalai`s visit: China



Beijing also urged Mongolia to stick to its promise.

"China hopes Mongolia will learn lesson from the Dalai Lama`s visit last month and respect China`s core interests," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said here on Wednesday.

"China attaches importance to the Mongolian Foreign Minister`s explicit statement... China urges Mongolia to honour its commitment and make efforts to improve bilateral relations," Hua said.

On Tuesday, Mongolian Foreign Minister Tsend Munkh-Orgil said the Dalai Lama will never be let in again, even for religion.

Defying Beijing`s warning, Mongolia in November hosted the Dalai Lama who met worshippers in the majorly Buddhist nation.

In turn, China hiked tariff on Mongolian trucks moving through its territory. The situation created a blockade of sorts for the poor nation.

Mongolia also sought India`s help in tiding over the crisis caused by the hiked tariff.

The Dalai Lama has lived in India since fleeing his homeland in 1959.
