US Urges China To Hold Substantive Dialogue On Tibet

The US government urged the Chinese government to hold substantive dialogue with Tibet's exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama or his representatives on protecting Tibetan culture, language, religion, and heritage in Tibet, the US Congressional-Executive Commission on China said in its 2010 annual report released on Satruday.

The commission appealed to the Chinese government to invite a representative of an international organisation to meet with Gendun Choekyi Nyima, the second-most senior figure in Tibetan Buddhism.

The report highlighted the “significance of including participation of US NGOs in the development projects to assist Tibetans to protect and develop their culture and language, and to improve education, economic, health and environmental conservation, without encouraging an influx of non-Tibetans into the Tibetan areas.”
