China slams Dalai Lama's US trip

Beijing urges the US to cancel a visit by the Dalai Lama, who they say will use the occasion to try to split China.

"The Dalai Lama is not purely a religious figure but a long-term political exile involved in separatist activities," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

It urged Washington not to allow the unconfirmed visit, which it says the Dalai Lama will use to try to split China.
