NEW 'SPA'PEllfl IC H1V E Tokyo Red China served notice today she holds full sovereignty over Tibet and will tolerate no interference by "any for- eign country or by the Uni- ted Nations." The Peiping government's mouthpiece accused India of trying to prevent China from exercising full sover- eignty in the revolt-torn re- ligious state. It warned that any Indian attempt to make Tibet a buffer zone would create a "truly deplorable situation." The ILBOO-word statement was prepared by the official People's Dftily and broad- cast by Peiping radio. It ap- peared to forth official government policy laying down rules under which In- dia and red China could continue friends. Although not abusive in lone, it, was firm reply to Indian Minister Neh- ru's recent statement >n that, he the Tibetan revolt only be settled by giving the area autonomy. The statement depicted Nehru as "the respected prime minister of our friendly neighbor" and call- ed him a friend of China, but it railed against his re- ferring to the crushing of the Tibetan revolt as a tragedy. Peiping still refrained from leveling a personal at- tack on the 23-year-old Da- lai Lama, but it asserted that the former ruling class in Tibet would not hesitate to kill the self-exiled ruler if it suited their purposes. It claimed the eleventh and twelfth Dalai Lamas were murdered by power-wield- ing Tibetans in the nine- teenth century and that a regent for the present Dalai was strangled in pri- son in 1947.
