Tibetans protest Chinese foreign minister's visit

New Delhi, June 8: Tibetan emigres Sunday staged a protest in Delhi against Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit to India.

With banners that read “Prime Minister Modi speak for Tibet”, Tibetans raised slogans and staged a protest at Majnu ka Tilla by the bank of the Yamuna river – an area inhabited by Tibetan refugees – in the national capital.

“We are protesting against the visit of the Chinese minister. Chinese leaders coming to India is not at all right for us,” said Kartan Naam, one of the protestors.

The demonstrators also burnt the Chinese flag.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for bilateral talks.
