Mongolia Protests Hike in Tariffs Imposed by China Following Dalai Lama Visit


Tibet's spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama's visit to Mongolia's capital city of Ulaanbaatar last month for religious teachings has raised concerns for China.

Following the warm welcome extended by Mongolia, a country of largely Buddhist population towards the Tibetan Buddhist leader, China has reacted by imposing a hike in tariffs on Mongolian trucks passing through Chinese territory.

Ambassador-designate of Mongolia, Gonchig Ganbold has urged India to provide clear support against the difficulties caused by the recent hike in tariffs that would result in transport obstruction with the flow of essential commodities and likely turn into a humanitarian crisis.

China believes that the Dalai Lama is a separatist, an opponent of Beijing, and has repeatedly urged countries to stay away from China's internal policies and not to meet with the Nobel laureate.
