Dialogue Best Way To Resolve the Issue of Tibet: US[Tuesday, 21 September 2010, 10:22 a.m.]

Reaffirming its policy on encouraging direct dialogue between His
Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Chinese government, the US government
said Monday that “dialogue is the best way to resolve the issue of
Tibet”.”Our policy on Tibet is that we have engaged very
intensively with the Chinese in support of building a dialogue more
directly between the Dalai Lama and Tibetans and the government in
Beijing,” US Deputy Secretary of State, James Steinberg said in
response to a question after delivering a speech on ”Impact of
US-China Relations in Asia”.”I think ultimately these issues
have to be resolved between dialogue between the two of them. We don”t
think these are issues that outsiders can resolve,” he said, adding
that the Obama Administration thinks that dialogue will be in
everyone”s interest.
“So we have strongly encouraged that.”The
issues of religious and cultural rights in Tibet are a part of the US
government’s broader commitments to human rights, he said.”So
we think within the framework of dialogue between China and the Dalai
Lama as represented is the best way to try to address those issues,” he
added.Related report:
