Dalai Lama`s Special Envoy meets State Department official

Dalai Lama`s Special Envoy discussed issues related to Tibetan refugees.



Washington: Dalai Lama`s Special Envoy Lodi Gyari met a senior State Department official here and discussed issues related to Tibetan refugees, among others.

The meeting with the Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, Eric Schwartz, was held at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department yesterday.

"My brief is refugees, among other humanitarian issues. The United States Government, provides considerable support and assistance through international organisations.”

"For Tibetan refugees, whose circumstances in the region are increasingly difficult. I expect that that issue will occupy much of our discussion," Schwartz told reporters before the meeting.

He said this was not a first such meeting, and US officials have been meeting Gyari time and again.

"Gyari is a US citizen and has met a number of US officials in the past," he said in response to a question.
