New Delhi: US lawmakers’ delegation met the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama at Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday. The bipartisan seven-member group of American lawmakers is visiting India to meet the Nobel peace laureate Dalai Lama.

The United States has long supported the rights of the Tibetan people to practice their religion and culture. The US has accused China of human rights violations in the remote Himalayan region that borders India.

US House of Representatives passed a bipartisan bill in June 2024, to aim to push Beijing to hold talks with Tibetan leaders, stalled since 2010, to secure a negotiated agreement on Tibet and spur China to tackle Tibetan aspirations on historical, cultural, religious and linguistic identity.

Among the delegation are the two authors of the act, titled Promoting a Resolution to the Tibet-China Dispute Act or the Resolve Tibet Act, along with Nancy Pelosi, the former speaker of the US House of Representatives. The delegation also met officials of Tibet’s Government in exile, which functions from India.
