China expressed strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to the so-called "Tibetan Policy and Support Act of 2019", and has lodged solemn representations with the US side, a foreign ministry spokesperson said Thursday.

Spokesperson Geng Shuang's remarks came after the US House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs introduced the so-called "Tibetan Policy and Support Act of 2019."

The act severely violates the basic norms governing international relations, grossly interferes in China's internal affairs and sends a seriously wrong signal to the separatist forces of "Tibetan Independence," Geng said at a press briefing, adding that China firmly opposes the move.

China's policy and position on Tibet-related issues are consistent and clear. Tibetan affairs are purely China's internal affairs and allow no foreign interference, he said.

"We urge the US to fully recognize the high sensitivity of Tibet-related issues, honor its commitment to China on Tibet-related issues, stop using Tibet-related issues to interfere in China's internal affairs and stop promoting relevant laws," Geng added.
