Tibet 'govt-in-exile' taking advantage of border standoff: Chinese media

ANI  |  Beijing [China] 

China's state run Global Times has alleged that the Tibetan "in exile" is taking advantage of the military standoff between and in Doklam.

The Chinese response came after it was reported that Tibetan "in exile" Prime Minister had hoisted a "Tibetan flag," a symbol of "independence" besides the Pangong Lake, which sits astride both and China

The Global Times quoted Hu Zhiyong, a research fellow at the Academy of Social Sciences, as saying that, "This activity made by a 'independence' group in might worsen the situation and further damage Sino-Indian relations."

"We hope will not ease its restraints on 'independence' groups and not use 'Tibet independence' as a bargaining chip to to further worsen the situation," said Chu Yin, an Associate Professor at the University of International Relations.

Yin added that the sovereignty over Tibet is not something negotiable, so, India should not push to a point where a peaceful solution becomes impossible.
