US law preventing Chinese interference has been approved by President Donald Trump. Under this, Washington will not only establish a consulate in Tibet but will also ensure that only the Buddhist community selects their supreme religion guru. In this regard, talk of forming an international alliance to pressure Beijing.
It is also said, the new law provides for six million dollars for Tibetans living in India. On the other hand, Beijing has lodged strong opposition to this law of America. Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lizhiyan said in a regular press briefing that any issue related to Tibet is our domestic matter and we completely reject this law.
The 'Tibetan Policy and Support Act' re-authorizes various programs and provisions related to Tibet. The bill was unanimously passed in the US Senate last week despite China's opposition. The law will not only provide assistance to non-governmental organizations that support Buddhist communities in Tibet but prohibits the opening of new Chinese consulates in the United States until Washington opens its consulate in Tibet's capital, Lhasa.
The US policy so far has been that it takes action against such officials of the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party, who have been engaged in the ongoing process of choosing the Dalai Lama's successor. The current Dalai Lama sees Beijing as a separatist.
