Washington says it will give up 1.7 million US dollars to support projects fostering links between Americans and Tibetans.

The State Department announced an open competition for tenders for development, cultural, educational and cultural projects.

It says the aim is to promote understanding between the Americans and the people of the Tibetan ethnic group living in China.

The department says some projects should be aimed at tackling health problems the ethnic Tibetans face.

It also invited tender for projects which will aid conservationists, tourism and entrepreneurs.

The United States has repeatedly urged Beijing to improve its human rights record in Tibet.
