Ti­betan leader urges Trump to con­front China on rights

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -


The head of the Ti­betan gov­ern­ment-in-ex­ile said yesterday he was en­cour­aged by US Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump’s tough stand on China and urged him to ditch back­door diplo­macy on fur­ther­ing the Ti­betan cause and be more con­fronta­tional. The United States and its Euro­pean al­lies have sought to en­gage China over al­le­ga­tions of re­pres­sion since Wash­ing­ton reached out to Bei­jing back in the 1970s, ef­fec­tively driv­ing the Ti­betan is­sue out of pub­lic fo­rums, Lobsang Sangay said. — Reuters
