May 17,2018--A National People's Congress (NPC) delegation of legislators from China's Tibet Autonomous Region wrapped up its six-day visit to the United States on Monday.
The delegation, led by Baima Wangdui, deputy of the People's Congress of the Tibet Autonomous Region and member of the Tibetan regional party standing committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), met U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan, Congressmen Darin LaHood, Rick Larsen, Jim McGovern and other State Department officials in Washington.
Baima Wangdui, who is also the secretary of the CPC Lhasa Municipal Party Committee, held discussions with assistants of U.S. lawmakers and experts at the research department of U.S. Congress.
In San Francisco, the delegation exchanged ideas with local overseas Chinese and Tibetan representatives.
During meetings with the U.S. side, Baima Wangdui said China attaches great importance to China-U.S. relations.
He said that Chinese President Xi Jinping has maintained close contact with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, and the two leaders have reached important consensuses on a broad range of issues, which guided the China-U.S. relations to achieve major progress.
He also pointed out that some differences and sensitive issues still exist between the two countries that need to be handled properly.
The Tibet Autonomous Region is willing to implement the important consensuses reached between the two heads of state, strengthen exchanges and cooperation with the U.S. side, and enhance mutual understanding so as to serve the overall interests of China-U.S. relations, Baima Wangdui said.
