“If we don’t challenge them, they will challenge us,” Chow said, adding that the issue addresses not only Tibet, but also Taiwan.

“Taiwan and China are countries with some of the closest ties in the world. If we don’t speak out on the Tibet issue then, in the end, Taiwan, with so many businesses and citizens in China whose human rights also need to be protected, will be the one that gets hurt,” she said.
