Washington, November 19
A bipartisan resolution recognising the cultural and religious significance of an autonomous Tibet and seeking peaceful solutions to the conflict has been passed by the US House of Representatives.
The resolution recognised the significance of Tibet’s autonomy and the contribution of the Dalai Lama to promote peace. Another resolution condemned rights violations in Hong Kong.
“Today, the House sent a strong message with the passage of resolutions calling for an end to China’s rights abuses. The House on a bipartisan basis will always fight for freedom of religion and culture in Tibet autonomous region and for the rule of law in Hong Kong,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. — PTI
