CTA asks UN to hold China accountable
After slamming China for its expansionist policies and issuing a warning to Nepal regarding Chinese combativeness, Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has now asked the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to hold a special session on human right violations by China in Tibet and other regions under it. Accusing China of committing a ‘cultural genocide’ in Tibet, President of the Tibetan government-in-exile, Lobsang Sangay, has issued a statement in which he has asked UNHRC to act with a sense of urgency to unite and ensure that China fulfils its obligations under international laws including human rights obligations before it is too late.
