Watch: China upset as Dalai Lama visits Arunachal Pradesh

The Chinese foreign ministry warned India, second time in a month, that allowing the Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal Pradesh can seriously damage the bilateral ties between the two countries. Arunachal Pradesh has a sizeable Buddhist population and India claims that it is a religious visit by the Dalai Lama to give blessings to his disciples.

China claims Arunachal Pradesh as part of south Tibet. The region of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh was also the birthplace of the sixth Dalai Lama, further complicating China's ongoing conflict over Tibet. For now, the spiritual leader will continue with his 12 day trip to the northeast.
