China has vowed to wage an ‘unceasing fight’ against separatism.  President Xi Jinping, said, the Chinese government will never accept exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama’s autonomy proposals. 

This year marks the 50th year since China established what it calls the Tibet Autonomous Region.  In 1950 troops marched in and took control in what Beijing called a peaceful liberation. 

Xi repeated the government’s standard opposition to Tibetan independence, saying he would fight an unswerving anti-separatism battle, state media said.  The sentiment was offered at a two-day conference Monday and Tuesday of the senior leadership about Tibet, it marks the 6th time talks have ever been held. 

The Dalai Lama has consistently claimed he only wants genuine autonomy for Tibet, he calls the Middle Way.  Beijing believes and has said Tibet already has real autonomy. 

The government says they have ended serfdom and has brought development to what they call a backward region. 

The Dalai Lama remains in exile in India.
