Labour MP Fabian Hamilton expressed his distaste for China's "bully-boy" tactics with Leeds City Council.
China threatened to pull its athletes out of their Leeds Olympic training camp due to a visit by the Dalai Lama to the city, the BBC understands.
The Tibetan spiritual leader is due to speak at a business convention in the city on Friday.
Mr Hamilton is the Labour MP for Leeds North East and chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet.
