Ger­man leg­is­la­tor un­wel­comed in China for back­ing Ti­bet

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Bei­jing: A For­eign Min­istry spokesper­son said on Thurs­day that China had re­fused to al­low a Ger­man leg­is­la­tor to visit the coun­try for his pro-Ti­betan in­de­pen­dence po­si­tion. Michael Brand, chair­man of the Com­mit­tee on Hu­man Rights and Hu­man­i­tar­ian Aid of the Ger­man Bun­destag, is not wel­come to China, spokesman Lu Kang said at a rou­tine press brief­ing. Mr Lu said Brand’s po­si­tion of back­ing “Ti­betan in­de­pen­dence” is against Ger­many’s one-China pol­icy. Brand was de­nied per­mis­sion to visit China purely be­cause of his po­si­tion on Ti­bet, not for his com­ments on the hu­man rights sit­u­a­tion in China, stressed Mr Lu.
