Tibet: UN Resolutions

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 29 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he has taken to encourage the UN to give effect to UN Resolutions 1353 and 1723 on Tibet; and if he will make a statement. (168233)

[holding answer 26 November 2007]: We have not made representations to the UN on UN Resolutions 1353 (1959) and 1723 (1961) on Tibet. We do, however, regularly raise our concerns on Tibet directly with the Chinese Government, including the need to respect and protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of the Tibetan people. We did this at the last round of the UK-China Human Rights Dialogue in London in February, and we continue to monitor the situation in Tibet closely.
