China occupied Tibet militarily in 1950 and a year later annexed the territory of Tibet, saying it was a Chinese province.
After the failed anti-Chinese uprising in 1959, the Dalai Lama fled to India, where 100,000 Tibetans have sought refuge since.
Tibet was officially an independent country until 1951. However, in that year, the Tibetan government minister, Ngapo Ngawang Jigme, was forced to sign the so-called Seventeen Point Agreement in Beijing, which in China is called the Treaty of Peaceful Liberation of Tibet, the text of which states Explicitly stated for the first time that Tibet is part of China.
The treaty organized the rights of Tibet within the People’s Republic of China, and guaranteed it national and regional autonomy, religious freedom, and social reforms. However, in violation of the treaty, the Chinese leadership constantly suppressed and continued to suppress Tibetan cultural traditions, especially religious ones.
Therefore, the Dalai Lama seeks real autonomy for Tibet, giving Tibetans freedom of decision-making in the areas of education, culture, religion and economy, while issues of foreign policy and defense remain the prerogative of China.
