China reiterated its resolve to stamp out any separatist activities by the “Dalai Lama clique” as Tibet prepared to hold protests across major cities in the world to commemorate 58th anniversary of the 1959 uprising against the Chinese rule on Friday.

This time around, the Tibetan Uprising Day coincides with the yearly news conference of Tibet’s delegation to China's annual meeting of parliament, under way in Beijing. China has been frequently criticized by international human rights groups over its oppressive regime, pervasive surveillance and use of military force in Tibet, writes Reuters.

Chinese troops entered into Tibet in 1950, an action Beijing describes as “peaceful liberation,” but the ethnic and cultural differences between the two states do not comply with the idea of “One China.” The members of Tibetan Youth Congress rallied against Beijing, holding protests outside the Chinese embassy in New Delhi, India on Friday, notes India.com.
