United States impose sanctions against representatives of the Chinese government and the Communist party of China due to the violation of the autonomy of Tibet from China.
This was announced by US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, reports Reuters.
According to Pompeo, the Chinese government limits access to American diplomats, journalists and tourists to the territory of the Autonomous Tibet.
He stressed that this access is very important for stability in the region, given the human rights violations in China and the inability of Beijing to prevent the deterioration of the environment near the major rivers of Asia.
“Today I am announcing visa restrictions for the Chinese government and officials of the Communist party of China who intend to participate in the development and implementation of policy to restrict access for foreigners to Tibetan areas,” said Pompeo.
