China opposes to US bill about access to Tibet
By:Ministry of Foreign Affairs
update:December 17,2018
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang's Regular Press Conference on December 14, 2018

Q: The US Congress has voted to demand access for US diplomats, journalists and tourists to Tibet. If these people do not get access to Tibet, the US Congress wants to deny the access of Chinese officials to the US. What is your reaction to that?

A: The relevant bill passed by the US Congress has disregarded the facts, grossly interfered in China's domestic affairs, and violated the basic norms of international relations. China is resolutely opposed to this and has made stern representations to the US.
Tibet affairs are purely China's domestic affairs and allow no interference from other countries. If a foreigner wants access to Tibet, he/she can go through normal channels to realize that. In fact, every year, a large number of Chinese and foreigners go to Tibet for visit, travel and business. Take the United States for example, there have been nearly 40,000 Americans who have come to Tibet since 2015, including the minority leader of the US House of Representatives and senators. All these have fully proved that the accusations against China in the US bill are totally untenable and must not be accepted by the Chinese government and people.
We urge the US administration to immediately take effective measures to prevent the bill from being signed into law, so as not to seriously damage China-US relations and cooperation between the two countries in important areas.
