US Speaker House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday (local time) said that for decades, the Chinese government has waged a dangerous assault on human rights in Tibet which clearly shows that it has no regard for Tibetan autonomy, identity or faith.
Pelosi made these remarks at the 8th World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet. Taking to Twitter, she wrote, “This morning, it was a great honor to join leaders from Tibet and around the world for the 8th World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet, reaffirming the United States’ commitment to the Tibetan people.”
“For decades, the Chinese government has waged a dangerous assault on human rights in Tibet, clearly showing that it has no regard for Tibetan autonomy, identity or faith. This forum is crucial, bringing together leaders from all over the world to advance real autonomy for Tibet,” she added.
US House Speaker Pelosi said that the world has a moral duty to speak out with one voice against Beijing’s abuses and stand up for the Tibetan people. She added that if “we do not speak out against human rights abuses in China because of commercial ties, we lose all moral authority to speak out against humans rights, anywhere.”
The eighth World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet (WPCT) is being held in Washington, DC. from June 22 to 23 to gather the world leaders in expressing concern over human rights violations and religious repression in Tibet.
More than 100 participants from 26 countries, including from the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile, are attending it both in-person and virtually. This convention, organized by the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile, is in continuation of the previous seven sessions of WPCT aimed to strengthen and coordinate support by parliamentarians from different countries to resolve the Tibet issue.
The first WPCT was held in New Delhi (1994) honoring the foundational role India has played in the survival of the Tibetan identity after the Chinese invasion and occupation of Tibet. Subsequent conventions have been held in cities like Vilnius, Washington D.C, Edinburgh, Rome, and Ottawa.
