Tibet situation raised at UN rights council debate

(TibetanReview.net, Mar20, 2014) The United States and the United Kingdom have on Mar 18 expressed concern over the human rights situation in Tibet during the general debate at the 25th session of the UN Human Rights Council being held in Geneva. Also, Germany, Canada and the Czech Republic have expressed concerns over the situation of the rights of minorities in the People’s Republic of China.

In his statement, the UK delegate has expressed concern over the “ongoing reports of restrictions on religious, cultural and language rights, particularly in Xinjiang and Tibetan areas” while also referring to “restrictions on freedom of expression, association and assembly” in the PRC. He has urged the Government of China to “engage in meaningful dialogue with ethnic minority communities to resolve grievances and to immediately release all those who peacefully advocate for ethnic minority rights.”

Likewise, Mr Peter Mulrean, Chargé d’Affaires of the US Mission in Geneva, has accused China of having “increased Internet controls, media censorship,” and of having “continued to limit religious freedom, particularly in Tibetan and Uighur areas.” He has also said China had “increased arrests, forced disappearances, and extralegal detentions of those who peacefully challenge official policies and actions.”
