DHARAMSHALA, Nov. 16: The President of the exile Tibetan government known officially as the Central Tibetan Administration on Thursday said he has pushed for four key agendas during his stay in Washington DC.

Dr. Lobsang Sangay said he met with key politicians, lawmakers and influential staffers in the US government earlier in the week to push on four fronts: the appointment of the currently vacant position of Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues in the US state department, advocating support for the ‘Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act’, garnering support for the Middle Way Approach and dialogue with China, and expediting the release of three million USD that has been earmarked for CTA by the US House of Representatives.

The Tibetan President delivered a talk titled ‘Tibet and the Belt and Road Initiative: Lessons Learned from the Tibetan Experience’ with Chinese Infrastructure Projects at an event organized by National Endowment for Democracy (NED) on Tuesday. He also met with a high-level representatives of the United States Agency for International Development, an independent agency of the United States federal government from whom CTA received funds in the last few years.

During his visit, Dr. Sangay called on key members of the United States House of Representatives and the Senate including Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, House Democracy Partnership’s (HDP) Chair, Congressman Peter Roskam and Ranking Member, Congressman David Price, Senator Cory Gardner and Senator Patrick Leahy.

President Sangay also participated in a conversation with influential Senate and House staffers, which was organized by Nima Binara, Counsel of Senator Patrick Leahy. The round-table explored a wide range of topics including the United State’s policies towards China, opportunities to advance the Tibet issue through legislative means, and strategies to further strengthen political advocacy for Tibet, the CTA run Tibet.net reported.

Sangay will speak at an event organized by the Tibetan Community of New York and New Jersey on Nov. 22.
