Washington DC: The US Congress’s House of Representatives introduced a formal resolution titled “Recognizing the significance of the genuine autonomy of Tibet and the Tibetan people and the work His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has done to promote global peace, harmony, and understanding” on 14 November.
It was introduced by Representative Ted Yoho along with Rep. McCaul, Smith, and McGovern.
The purpose of the resolution would for the House of Representatives to:
(1) recognizes the cultural and religious significance of a genuinely autonomous Tibet and the deep bond between the American and Tibetan people;
(2) commends the 14th Dalai Lama for his commitment to global peace and nonviolence; and
(3) determines that it would be beneficial to convene a bipartisan, bicameral forum, either through a Joint Meeting of Congress, a teleconference broadcast in the Auditorium at the Capitol Visitor Center, or roundtable, between Members of Congress and His Holiness the Dalai Lama to discuss peaceful solutions to international conflicts.
