Wangchuk from NY :

I hope the UK passes a reciprocal access bill just like the USA did. Many British & American citizens have been denied entry to Tibetan areas for political reasons yet we impose no such large scale restrictions on Chinese visitors to our respective countries.

It's not just Tibetan historical sources that prove Tibet was independent of China prior to 1950. Imperial archives also show the Yuan, Ming & Qing dynasties never considered Tibet to be part of China but actually outside China's borders.

Sonam TSering from London :

I was tired of hearing China's Tibet in your several early reports. But here is a factual report based on historical truth, that Tibet was an independent country. So I congratulate RFA for the change of tone, in reporting the truth.

"A formerly independent nation, Tibet was taken over and incorporated into China by force nearly 70 years ago".

Tibetan leaders not insisting on the independence status of Tibet, in their dealing with China might be a huge blunder. Demanding independence would have been the only leverage against China. Demanding anything short of independence is a win win for the Chinese communist party, but lose lose for Tibetan cause. As the middle way policy is not working, and it is time to wake up to the reality, by reversing to the historical status of Tibet independence and demand the same, whether you get it or not is in-materials. it is the right to do.
