Indian internet connections to servers in China appear to have been cut with no ability for Indian web users to access websites hosted in China.

The breach also appears to have affected corporate email with Indian employees are unable to connect to their colleagues and friends in China. Users in India have had to use services based overseas like Gmail to connect to China.

The reason for the disruption is currently unknown. It may be related to heightening border tensions between China and India that led to two Indian military personnel being shot and wounded after coming under fire from Chinese troops in the Indian-controlled Kerang area of Sikkim around two weeks ago.

On Monday, U.S. officials led by White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett, met with the Dalai Lama in northern India. During the two hour meeting, the officials and the spiritual leader talked about the problems of the Tibetan people and ways on how this can be resolved, reported Reuters.

The Dalai Lama is slated to tour the United States and Canada this month for a series of religious teachings and will probably meet U.S. President Obama then.

"She (Jarrett) came to brief His Holiness on President Obama's administration's focus on Tibet," Tenzin Taklha, an aide to the Dalai Lama, told Reuters.

"His Holiness conveyed to Ms. Jarrett the issues that he would like President Obama to take when he visits China," the Dalai Lama's office said in a statement. "His Holiness... was hopeful that during his presidency (Obama) the Tibetan people can see progress in the resolution of their problem."

Mr. Obama is also scheduled to visit China this year for talks in hopes of improving economic and diplomatic ties.
