China said on Wednesday it will impose visa restrictions on U.S. citizens who have engaged in what it called egregious behavior over Tibet, in apparent retaliation against U.S restrictions on some Chinese officials, APA reports citing The National Post.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters that Beijing would allow no foreign interference in Tibetan affairs.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, citing what he called human rights abuses by the Chinese government in Tibetan areas, said on Tuesday the United States would restrict visas for some Chinese officials because Beijing obstructs travel to the region by U.S. diplomats, journalists and tourists.
