US Asks China to Review Tibet Policies
Phayul[Friday, October 31, 2008 11:11]
Dharamshala October 31 — The United States on Thursday asked China to review its policies in Tibet, ahead of talks between His Holiness the Dalai Lama's envoys and Chinese officials.

Two envoys of the Dalai Lama accompanied by three senior officials left for China just days after the 73 year old Tibetan leader expressed dissatisfaction over the progress of talks with China.

State Department spokesman Gordon Duguid said the United States "encourage China to examine policies that have created tensions due to their effect on Tibetan culture, religion and livelihoods," Washington also wanted China to improve access to Tibetan areas for journalists, diplomats and other international observers, he said.

Duguid was explaining the US position over a special meeting that His Holiness the Dalai Lama has called with exiled Tibetans in November.

"It has been our longstanding and consistent view that the most appropriate and productive means of dealing with the difficult issue of Tibet is through serious, substantive dialogue between the Chinese authorities and the Dalai Lama's representatives," Duguid said.

"In order for the dialogue to be meaningful, both parties must be genuinely committed to the process," he said. "We and others around the world will continue to look to these talks to result in concrete progress."

His Holiness said last weekend that he had "faith and trust" in the Chinese people, but that his "faith and trust in the Chinese government is diminishing".

More than 300 Tibetans are expected to gather next month in Dharamshala, the headquarters of the exile Tibetan government, for a special meeting on future of Tibet.
