October 16, 2007 –

“If the Dalai Lama can receive such an award, there must be no justice or good people in the world. We are furious.”

So said the Communist Party Secretary of Tibet, Zhang Qingli, who lambasted the exiled spiritual leader for trying to “split the motherland”.

On Wednesday, October 17, 2007 in Washington, the Dalai Lama will receive a Congressional Gold Medal, a top US civilian award.

Last year China was also outraged when Canada granted the Dalai Lama honorary citizenship.
