The UK continues to express strong ​​concerns about human rights and freedoms in Tibet. We consistently urge the Chinese authorities to respect all fundamental rights across the People's Republic of China, in line with both its own constitution and the international frameworks to which it is a party.

We raised our concerns about Tibet directly with the Chinese authorities at the UK-China Human Rights Dialogue held in Beijing on 27 June.
