August 12, 2011

August 10, 2011: At Minister Baird's request, Canadian officials expressed concern about the treatment of Tibetans in Nepal in a formal démarche to the Ambassador of Nepal to Canada.  Canada called on the Nepalese government to implement and adhere to international standards of human rights, including freedom of expression, association, religion and belief of ethnic Tibetans. Canada also encouraged Nepal to consider acceding to the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol, and to develop a legal framework which offers effective
protection to refugees and asylum seekers.
