China said it appreciated Sri Lanka’s stance on the Dalai Lama, as it seems unlikely their government would grant him a visa to visit.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson told Reuters the government “may not grant a visa” even if certain factions invited the Dalai Lama.

He added that Sri Lanka has not changed its stance on its “One China” policy.

Sri Lanka is a traditional friendly neighbor of China while the China-Sri Lanka relationship has always developed smoothly.

Sri Lanka fully understands and respects China’s concerns on the relevant issue.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular briefing in Beijing that China appreciates the Sri Lankan stance and are willing to work together with Sri Lanka to constantly strengthen the traditional friendly partnership.
