Activists detained by the Delhi Police and were carried away to Mandir Marg Police Station.

Prior to the visit of Wang Yi, TYC issued a press statement condemning Yi’s visit. The press statement reads as follows:

As Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrives in India to discuss LAC resolution and the Ukraine crisis. Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC), the largest Tibetan NGO in exile strongly condemns his visit to India after his visit to Pakistan.


TYC expresses serious concern about the current critical situation in Tibet and urges Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar to bring up the issue of Tibetan freedom with their Chinese counterparts.


While we recognize that this meeting is a great opportunity for India and China to push for progress, we strongly urge Indian leaders to hold the Chinese leaders responsible for their actions in Tibet. With the illegal occupation of Tibet by China, the border disputes between India and China have become tenser and Chinese forces have time and again tried to illegally intrude on Indian Soil. The constant transgressions from the PLA at the Indo-Tibet border were never an issue before 1959. Hence, to combat and control the forceful intrusion of Chinese forces on Indian soil, Tibet’s independence remains the only viable solution.


The current Chinese Communist Government is directly responsible for the current spate of tragic events unravelling inside Tibet including Human Rights violations. and restrictions on freedom of religion. Over 158 Tibetans have self-immolated inside Tibet since 2009. The fate and conditions of the others are still not known. Protests are taking place randomly across the plateau, demanding the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Freedom for Tibet, and Independence for Tibet.


TYC condemns Wang Yi’s visit and exposes China for all the lies, fabrications, and atrocities committed not just to the Tibetans but to the world at large. Hence, Tibetan Youth Congress would like to put forward three of our demands:


  1. Make China Accountable for all the atrocities committed against the people of Tibet, Uyghurs, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Southern Mongolia.
  2. To counter and combat PLA transgressions at the Line of Actual Control, Tibet remains the only viable solution.
  3. To release all the imprisoned Tibetan political prisoners unconditionally.


We believe it is time for Indian leaders to confront the Chinese Government on the issue of Tibet and use diplomatic measures sending a strong message that Human Rights and human lives are as important as trade and economy.
