LHASA, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- China's Tibet Autonomous Region has taken a "clear-cut" stance against the Dalai Lama clique and resolutely safeguarded national security and core interests, a regional government official said Thursday.
"Tibet has firmly curbed and cracked down on secession, infiltration and sabotage activities by hostile forces at home and abroad," said Qizhala, chairman of the regional government, in his government work report delivered at the second session of the 11th People's Congress of Tibet Autonomous Region.
Qizhala said the region has taken resolute measures to safeguard the stability of the region on certain occasions and strengthened social management governance across the region.
He said that the regional government has managed religious affairs in accordance with the law and strictly followed the revised regulations on religious affairs.
Last year, the region launched an education campaign among monks and nuns, and improved the mechanism for long-term monastery management, he said in the report.
"Tibet has also strengthened joint efforts in border areas to maintain harmony and stability," Qizhala said.
