China hopes Mongolia will "actually learn a lesson" and honor its promise to stick to the One-China policy, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Wednesday.

Hua made the remarks in a press conference in Beijing after Mongolian Foreign Minister Tsend Munkh-Orgil told media that his country would no longer invite the Dalai Lama for visits and support the one-China policy.

He also ruled out the Dalai getting into Mongolia through religious channels during the current Mongolian government's term.

Tsend Munkh-Orgil said Mongolia regrets that the country's ties with China have suffered in the wake of the Dalai's visit in November.

In response, Hua said China values the Mongolian foreign minister's declaration, and hopes Mongolia will keep its promises.

Issues over Tibet concern China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as China's core interests, and China's stance on such issues has been firm and clear, Hua reiterated.
