China has illegally occupied Tibet for over 60 years. It has refused to negotiate with Tibetan leaders since 2010.

But a new bill in Congress will pressure China to get back to the negotiating table.

The Promoting a Resolution to the Tibet-China Conflict Act will:

Make it official US policy that the conflict between Tibet and China is unresolved and Tibet’s legal status remains to be determined under international law

Recognize that Tibetans have a right to self-determination—and that China is violating it

Fault China for failing to meet expectations of engaging in dialogue with the Dalai Lama or his representatives

Reject as “historically false” China’s claim that Tibet has been part of China since ancient times

Empower the Office of the Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues to counter Communist Party propaganda about the history of Tibet, the Tibetan people and Tibetan institutions, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Make clear that Tibet includes not only the so-called “Tibet Autonomous Region” of China but also Tibetan areas of Gansu, Sichuan, Qinghai and Yunnan provinces
