BEIJING -- China on Monday voiced its opposition over a senior U.S. official meeting with the Dalai Lama.

"China is strongly displeased by and opposed to a senior U.S. official meeting with the Dalai Lama in disregard of China's multiple representations," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said in a statement issued on Monday.

Hua's comments came after U.S. President Obama's senior adviser Valerie Jarrett took part in Dalai's 80th birthday "celebrations" in New York on Friday.

"We urge the U.S. side to honor its commitment to recognizing Tibet as part of China and not supporting 'Tibet independence' and take concrete measures to rectify mistakes and undo any harm done," Hua said.

She called on the United Statesto stop providing any convenience and support to "Tibet independence" forces and not let it interfere with and damage China-US relations.
