President Xi Jinping’s Unannounced Tibet Visit

President Xi Jinping’s unannounced visit to China’s occupied Tibet at the time of heightened border tensions between India and China is seen as a significant development, which has geopolitical implications. His Tibet visit follows the US’s full withdrawal from Afghanistan after nearly 20 years of fighting terrorist groups in the troubled country.

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan, which denies China’s brutal persecution including the genocide of fellow Muslims in the Uyghur region (East Turkistan, which China occupied in 1949), is a big beneficiary of the #CCP regime.

The Chinese president chose Nyingchi (Kongpo region), southern Tibet that borders Arunachal Pradesh (north-eastern India), as his first stopover. Beijing has deployed heavy military installations in the region which is strategically important for China.Watch this panel discussion (if you haven’t done so).

Leading Tibetan activist Tenzin Tsundue, Tibetan MP Lhagyari Namgyal Dolkar, long-time Tibet supporter Vijay Kranti and China Expert Prof Srikanth Kondapalli share their thoughts on this latest development – Chinese President visit to Tibet.
