China has expressed its "strong dissatisfaction" to India following New Delhi's decision to host the Dalai Lama in a disputed border region.
"We firmly oppose the Dalai Lama's visit to the region," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang during a news briefing.
The Dalai Lama has been visiting the disputed eastern section of the China-India border, despite the fact that China has voiced its grave concerns.
Reports said the Dalai Lama arrived at the "Arunachal Pradesh state" on Sunday. The visit "fully exposes the Dalai Lama's separatist nature," Qin said.
