Lhasa protests first planned in Europe: China

By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 26: A top China Communist Party official visiting Nepal said anti-China protests in Lhasa were first planned in China.
“Thy made the first strategy in some European countries. But there were many international partners, including NGOs and representatives of some western governments,” foreign affairs chief Ai Peng told Maoist daily Jandisha Saturday.
He said this in reply to a question: Were there foreign hands behind the Lhasa violence?
Ai said he discussed anti-China demonstrations in Nepal with Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala who assured he was assured by Koirala ‘Nepal will leave no stone unturned in stopping such activities’.
Ai said: “That’s the reason I have taken no concern on this.”
Ai was the first foreign dignitary to hold discussions with government and party leaders after the 10 April assembly elections that didn’t favour India and USA.
EU that maintains keen interest hasn’t reached officially although Great Britain welcomed the election result.
