Dharamshala: On Thursday, Uzra Zeya, the US special coordinator for Tibetan affairs, met with Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama in Dharamshala. In a tweet, wrote, "His Holiness the 14th @DalaiLama meets with US Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues Uzra Zeya @UnderSecStateJ at his official house in Dharamshala on May 19, 2022."

On Wednesday, Zeya arrived in Dharamshala for a high-level visit that demonstrates Washington's strong support for the Tibetan cause. Tibetans greeted her warmly, as this was the first visit of a higher official from the Biden administration. This important visit comes after Penpa Tsering, the President of the Central Tibetan Administration, visited Washington last month. Tsering met with the US Special Envoy and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during his visit.

Speaker of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile Khenpo Sonam Tenphel extended his gratitude for the US support and urged for its continued support adding, "your visit to Dharamsala sends a clear message to the Chinese government." Zeya is on a visit to India and Nepal, from May 17-22. She was appointed as the special coordinator for Tibetan Issues in December last year.

The International Campaign for Tibet applauded her appointment and hoped she would work hard to promote communication between the Dalai Lama's envoys and Chinese leaders.
