Tibetan Government-In-Exile Thanks Trump Over Bill On Next Dalai Lama


    The Tibetan Parliament-in-exile has expressed gratitude to United States President Donald Trump for signing a new Tibet policy.

    On Sunday, Mr Trump signed the Tibetan Policy and Support Act of 2020 to modify and re-authorise various programmes and provisions related to Tibet. The bill reaffirms the right of Tibetans to choose a successor to the Dalai Lama and calls for establishing an American consulate in the country.

    In a statement issued by the Dharamshala-based Tibetan Parliament in exile, its Speaker Pema Jungney said, “This act officially endorses that recognition of the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama is the sole authority of the great XIV Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhist leaders and the Tibetan people with no interference from the Chinese government (People’s Republic of China).”
