Tibetan govt-in-exile lauds President Trump for new Tibet policy


PTI, Dec 29, 2020, 9:09 PM IST

The Tibetan Parliament-in-exile has expressed gratitude to United States President Donald Trump for signing a new Tibet policy.

On Sunday, Trump signed the Tibetan Policy and Support Act of 2020 to modify and re-authorise various programmes and provisions related to Tibet.

The bill reaffirms the right of Tibetans to choose a successor to the Dalai Lama and calls for establishing an American consulate in the country.

In a statement issued by the Dharamshala-based Tibetan Parliament-in-exile, its Speaker Pema Jungney said, “This act officially endorses that recognition of the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama is the sole authority of the great XIV Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhist leaders and the Tibetan people with no interference from the Chinese government (People’s Republic of China).”

“This act also recognises the importance of the Tibetan Plateau and the threat that climate change poses on Tibet,” the statement said.

“Over the years, the presidents of the United States of America have consistently supported the Tibet cause and we are immensely grateful for your indefatigable support in taking strong measures against China, a government that is economically the most powerful yet having the record of worst human rights violations,” it added.
