The Dalai Lama met with a senior US diplomat on Friday, continuing a swing through Washington that China says has undermined its relations with the United States. Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte met with the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader to discuss the situation in Tibet and the Dalai Lama's work on behalf of his followers, said Rob McInturff, a State Department spokesman. China is furious over the US Congress' award to the Dalai Lama of its highest civilian honor, personally bestowed by President George W. Bush in a ceremony Wednesday. China is demanding Washington stop supporting the Buddhist monk and that it act to repair ties.
