Tibet

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 25 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has received on the recent killings of Tibetan refugees by Chinese soldiers; and what representations she has made to the UN High Commission for Refugees on this matter. (96872)

To date, we have received a small number of letters from members of the public, including one from The Office of Tibet, asking us to raise the incident with the Chinese authorities. While we have not made representations to the UN High Commissioner on Refugees on this matter, we are working both bilaterally and with the EU to seek an urgent and transparent investigation by the Chinese government. The EU raised the incident with the Chinese government at the EU-China Human Rights Dialogue, last week.
