Dr Lobsang Sangay’s visit is expected to set an optimistic tone in the dialogue between China and the Dalai Lama
The head of the Tibetan government-in-exile has visited the White House for the first time in six decades, the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) said on Saturday, a move that could further enrage Beijing, which has accused the US of trying to interfere in China’s internal affairs.
Dr Lobsang Sangay entered the United States White House on Friday — a historic feat. This is the first time in the last 6 decades the head of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has been invited into the White House, the CTA said in a statement.
“It is a great honour to be the first political head of the Central Tibetan Administration to formally enter the White House,” Sangay said in a tweet.
