Senate Links China Aid, Tibet

October 06, 1987|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Senate voted 98 to 0 today to link the future provision of defense articles or services to China to a presidential certification that the Chinese government is "acting in good faith and in a timely manner to resolve human rights issues in Tibet."

The resolution also calls on President Reagan to meet with the exiled Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual leader, to support efforts to find a peaceful resolution to recent outbreaks of anti-Chinese violence in Tibet, which has been occupied by China since 1950.
