Nepal to Deport Illegal Tibetans

Facing pressure from China, Nepalese government officials have stated that they will be deporting Tibetans who do not have proper documentation. AFP reports:

Dottel said police and immigration department officials have been ordered to take action as the Tibetans have not stopped their protests despite repeated appeals from the government.

“We have been forced to take this measure as Tibetan immigrants continued with their anti-China protests. We don’t want to spoil our friendly relations with China,” the spokesman said.

“We will not allow our territory to be used for anti-China activity.”
