EU flagOn 18 May the European Parliament passed a resolution calling on the Nepalese government to “protect Tibetan refugees in transit to India, and end the suspension of exit permits without delay”.

The resolution, which focuses on recent political developments in Nepal, criticizes the Nepalese government’s decision to suspend issuing exit permits to Tibetan refugees for their onward travel to India since November 2005, stating that this has “left hundreds of Tibetans stranded in Nepal, and has exacerbated severe overcrowding” at the Refugee Reception Center in the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu.
