In this photo released by China's Xinhua News Agency, Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping, right, is welcomed upon his arrival to attend the celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of Tibet's "peaceful liberation" in Lhasa, capital of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, Sunday, July 17, 2011. Tibet has been a source of controversy for decades, since Beijing sent troops to occupy the country following the 1949 Communist revolution. It insists the region has been part of Chinese territory for centuries, a claim disputed by many Tibetans who say their Himalayan region has a long history of autonomous rule led by a series of Buddhist leaders.
