US asks China to address the concerns of Tibetans
Washington: The United States has asked China to address the human rights concerns of the people of Tibet, in the absence of which there has been no letup in the self-immolation bids by the Tibetans.
"We continue, publicly and privately, to urge the Chinese government at all levels to address policies in Tibetan areas that have created tensions and threatened the distinct religious, cultural and linguistic identity of the Tibetan people," the State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell told reporters at a news conference yesterday.
"So we call on the Chinese government to permit Tibetans to express their grievances freely, publicly, peacefully and without fear of retribution," he said, adding this is something that is very much a part of the country`s dialogue with the Chinese government.
