Tibetian leader visits White house for the 1st times in 6 decades
Lobsang Sangay, head of the Tibetan government-in-exile has visited the white house for the first time in six decades, amid tension between the US and China. The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) said that the visit amounts to an acknowledgment of both the democratic system of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) and its political head. The visit of Sangay could further infuriate Beijing which has accused the United States of trying to destabilize the region. Tibet has been one of the disputed regions between the US and China.
Lobsang Sangay is the president of the CTA who was invited to the white house to meet the newly appointed US Special Coordinator for Tibetan issues, Robert Destro, on Friday the CTA said in a press release.
