US Congressional panel passes crucial bill on Tibet

Washington
27 Jul 2018

A key Congressional committee has unanimously passed a crucial bill on Tibet under which Chinese officials responsible for discriminating against Americans who try to enter Tibet would be banned from entering the US.
The bill titled 'The Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act', seeking unhindered access to Tibetan areas to US officials, journalists and common citizens, something which is routinely denied by the Chinese government, now moves to the House of Representatives.
The legislation seeks to ensure that Americans are given the same access to Tibet that Chinese citizens have to the US.
