We took down our previous post, as the subscriber who so kindly emailed it in a few hours back had not looked into the fine details of the Reciprocal Access To Tibet Act, formalized details of which we only just received to examine. From its various clauses and definitions it appears that it considers, what’s described as ‘Tibetan Areas’, as compromising all those regions which are regarded as traditional Tibetan territory. That being the case it is neither fair or accurate to claim that the Act applies only to that truncated area of Tibet, named by the Chinese regime as ‘Tibet Autonomous Region’. While we are happy to issue this erratum concerns remain, particularly should China permit free access within that area but deny such entry to other Tibetan lands under its occupation. Under such a situation what would be the US response?
