China exerting tremendous anti-Tibetan pressure on Nepal

August 10, 2009

Tibetan Review
August 8, 2009

The Chinese pressure on Nepal to crack down
strongly on Tibetan protests had grown
tremendously in recent times, reported Review
Nepal Online Aug 5. It cited a source close to
Nepal’s foreign ministry as saying the Chinese
embassy in Kathmandu had sent more than a dozen
letters to the ministry in just one month. The
letters were said to warn that the Nepalese
government would be fully responsible for any
kind of anti-china activities that may take place in the country.

The report said the Chinese increased especially
after some Nepalese MPs visited Dharamsala and met with the Dalai Lama there.

Nepal’s response included issuing a notice
banning all Tibetan protests in the country and
declaring that those who violate the ban would be
jailed. Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal also
warned the concerned MPs against their alleged anti-China activities.
