The head of Tibet’s exiled government visited the White House for the first time in six decades. The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) gave this information on Saturday. This move by Tibet may further angered China, who accused the US of trying to interfere in its internal affairs.
The CTA said in a statement that Dr. Lobsang Sangay entered the White House of America on Friday which was a historic moment. For the first time in the last six decades, the CTA chief has been invited to the White House. “It is a great honor to be the first political head of the Central Tibet Administration to formally enter the White House,” Sangay said in a tweet.

The CTA said, “Today’s visit recognizes both the CTA’s democratic system and its political head.” This unprecedented meeting will probably create an optimistic atmosphere for the CTA’s involvement with US officials and will be more formal in the coming years. ‘
CTA President Sangay was invited to the White House on Friday to meet the newly appointed Special Coordinator of the United States for Tibet Affairs.
