US Congress passes bill urging China to resolve Tibet dispute! This is an original article from Radio Free Asia!

Senate Bill 138 passes in the United States House of Representatives 391-26, June 12, 2024 in Washington.

The legislation calling for Beijing to re-engage in talks with the Dalai Lama now heads to the president.

The U.S. Congress on Wednesday passed a bill urging Beijing to re-engage with the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan leaders to peacefully resolve their dispute over the status and governance of Tibet.

The Promoting a Resolution to the Tibet-China Dispute Act, also known as the Resolve Tibet Act, passed the House of Representatives 391-26 and now heads to President Joe Biden for a signature to become law.

The bill previously passed the House in February but was altered by the Senate, which passed it last month, requiring a second look.

The legislation rejects Beijing’s position that Tibet has been part of China since ancient times and calls on Beijing to “cease its propagation of disinformation about the history of Tibet, the Tibetan people, and Tibetan institutions, including that of the Dalai Lama.”
