Due to the many factors that can enter into
consideration regarding the process of nationality attribution, the
DIRB cannot make any statement on whether children born in India of
Tibetan exiles who fled China in 1959, and who never recognized
China's authority over Tibet, would be considered citizens of China
by the Chinese government.
Attached is a copy of the Nationality Law
of People's Republic of China.
