Reference News Network reported on December 14 On December 14, 2018, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Hao presided over a regular press conference and deliberated and passed the US Senate Senate to enter Tibet in 2018. The bill responded.

A reporter from the field asked: "The US Congress passed a bill requesting that US diplomats, journalists and tourists enter Tibet. If the above people cannot enter Tibet, the US Congress hopes to refuse Chinese officials to enter the United States. What are you doing? Comment?”

Lu said that the relevant bill passed by the US Congress disregarded the facts, grossly interfered in China’s internal affairs, and violated the basic norms of international relations. The Chinese side resolutely opposed this and has already made solemn representations to the US.

Lu said that Tibet affairs are purely China's internal affairs and cannot be interfered by other countries. Foreign personnel entering Tibet can be handled through normal channels. In fact, every year, a large number of Chinese and foreign people visit Tibet, travel and do business. Take the United States, there have been nearly 40,000 Americans who have come to Tibet since 2015, including the minority leaders and senators of the US House of Representatives. All these have fully proved that the accusations of the US bill on China are totally untenable and must not be accepted by the Chinese government and people.

Lu said that China urged the US administration to immediately take effective measures to prevent the case from being signed into law, so as not to seriously damage Sino-US relations and cooperation between the two countries in important areas.
