ICT press release, November 22, 2011
On the eve of the Republican Presidential debate on foreign policy scheduled for Tuesday, November 22, 2011, the International Campaign for Tibet has sent questionnaires to all candidates asking for them to give their views on what they would do on Tibet policy as President of the United States. Questions ask how the candidate would address the crisis in Tibet, whether or not he or she would meet with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in the White House, as well as other issues relating to relations between the Chinese and Tibetans.
ICT has been sending such questionnaires during presidential campaigns since 2000 and will publicly display each candidate¡¯s responses on the ICT homepage (savetibet.org). Because ICT is a non-profit, non-partisan organization, ICT cannot endorse any candidates or take part in any campaigns. The questionnaire is an attempt to inform Tibet-supporters in the U.S. of where each candidate stands on Tibet.
