The State Department said on Tuesday that it was barring Chinese authorities from the United States who were found to have restricted journalists, tourists, or diplomats or other American officials from entering Tibetan areas. The new visa restrictions are the latest set of sanctions that the Trump administration has imposed against China’s government and political leaders over the last several years, most recently to punish Beijing’s crackdown against protesters in Hong Kong, The Times reports.
Hong Kong is heading toward the same fate as Tibet after China imposed a new security law that criminalises calls for independence, the leader of the exiled Tibetan government has told AFP:
Lobsang Sangay said China was deceiving Hong Kong the same way it cheated Tibetan people in 1951 when it promised autonomy…. Sangay said that similar security laws were imposed on Tibet to crush independent voices which led to the 1959 Tibetan uprising against the Chinese rule after which The Dalai Lama fled to India. Saying that people in Hong Kong were pursuing basic human rights and democracy, he said what is happening right now in Hong Kong has already taken place in Tibet.
