China summons U.S. official over meeting between Obama and Dalai Lama
BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui summoned on Friday a senior U.S. embassy official in China after U.S. President Barack Obama held low-key talks with the Dalai Lama at the White House despite warnings from Beijing the meeting would damage ties.
Zhang summoned Daniel Kritenbrink, charge d'affaires of the U.S. embassy in China, on Friday night, according to a statement posted on the Chinese foreign ministry's website.
"The United States must take concrete actions to regain the trust of the Chinese government and people," Zhang said.
