Biden vows to settle Tibet issue with China

In early September, during the election campaign, the favourite of the presidential race in the United States, the candidate from the Democratic Party, Joe Biden, promised to settle the Tibet issue with China if he wins the elections. 

Biden noted that his foreign policy would be based on humanitarian values. “I will work with our allies to pressure Beijing and return it to direct dialogue with Tibetan representatives,” he said. The politician also promised to introduce new sanctions against China, personally meet with the Dalai Lama and expand the broadcasting of Voice of America in Tibetan.

Earlier it was reported that the United States would impose new sanctions against China due to human rights violations in Tibet. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that this would happen because the Chinese authorities refuse to let American diplomats, politicians and journalists into the region.

Biden did not miss the opportunity to criticize Donald Trump on the issue of Tibet. He stressed that the current president is the only one in the past three decades who has not met with the Dalai Lama.
