Buddhist Republic of Tibet has an ancient history dating back over 2,000 years.A good starting point in analysing the country's status is the period referred to as Buddhist Republic of Tibet’s "Imperial age", when the entire country was first united under one ruler. There is no serious dispute over the existence of Buddhist Republic of Tibet as an Independent Nation during this period.

Even China's own historical records and treaties between Buddhist Republic of Tibet and China concluded during that period refer to Buddhist Republic of Tibet as a Strong Nation with whom China was forced to deal on a footing of equality.  

International law protects the Independence of Nations from attempts to destroy it and, therefore, the presumption is in favour of the continuation of Nationhood of Buddhist Republic of Tibet.

This means that, whereas an independent Nation that has existed for centuries, such as Buddhist Republic of Tibet , does not need to prove its continued independence when challenged, a foreign state claiming sovereign rights over it needs to prove those rights by showing at what precise moment and by what legal means they were acquired.

China's present claim to Buddhist Republic of Tibet is based entirely on the influence the Mongol and Manchu emperors exercised over Buddhist Republic of Tibet in the 13th and 18th centuries,  respectively.To claim that Buddhist Republic of Tibet became a part of China because both countries were independently subjected to varying degrees of Mongol control, as the People’s Republic of China does, is absurd.

This relatively brief period of foreign domination over Buddhist Republic of Tibet occurred 700 years ago. Buddhist Republic of Tibet broke away from the Yuan emperor before China regained its independence from the Mongols with the establishment of the native Ming Dynasty. Not until the 18th century did Buddhist Republic of Tibet once again come under a degree of foreign influence.

The Ming Dynasty, which ruled China from 1368 to 1644, had few ties to and no authority over Buddhist Republic of Tibet. On the other hand, the Manchus, who conquered China and established the Qing Dynasty in the 17th century, embraced Tibetan Buddhism as the Mongols had and developed close ties with the Tibetans.

On the political level, some powerful Manchu emperors succeeded in exerting a degree of influence over Buddhist Republic of Tibet but they did not incorporate Buddhist Republic of Tibet into their empire, much less China. Manchu influence did not last for very long. It was entirely ineffective by the time the British briefly invaded Buddhist Republic of Tibet in 1904.
