Washington: The tension between the US and China continues to grow. Meanwhile, the United States has taken such a historic step towards Tibet, which could provoke China further. The US has invited Central Tibet Administration (CTA) President Lobsang Senge to visit the White House for the first time in 60 years. It is believed that only after six decades, America is now recognizing the Tibetan government in exile. This exiled government of Tibet is headquartered in Dharamshala city, India.
Actually, China has always been telling Tibet its share. America has never given diplomatic importance to the Tibetan government or its leaders before. But for the past few years, American officials have been in secret talks with Tibetan leaders. This historic step taken by the US regarding Tibet is being considered as a direct challenge to China, which may create new tension in the relationship between the two countries.
A CTA spokesperson in Dharamshala has also confirmed that President Senge has been invited to visit the White House. Last month, Senge was called to the US State Department for the first time as a guest. Here he met Robert Destro, the special director of Tibet affairs. No Tibetan leader went to the State Department before this. CTA spokesperson said- We are happy that two democracies are recognizing each other. The CTA and its leader being invited from the White House can be said to be an important start. Senge will meet with White House officials here.
