Dharamshala: The Tibet Bureau of His Holiness the Dalai Lama based in Geneva has compiled a document containing all the recommendations and procedures passed by the United Nations for China to improve human rights situation in Tibet.
 
The document titled: “UN Treaty Bodies and Special Procedures’ Interventions, Observations and Recommendations for China on Human Rights Situation in Tibet”, will be used during the UN session on universal periodic review of China's human rights record scheduled on 9 and 10 February.
 
The Tibet Bureau has forwarded copies of the document to about 40 foreign missions to the UN-based in Geneva.
 
Concerning the document, Mr Tseten Samdup, His Holiness the Dalai Lama's representative in Geneva, will meet with the Czech ambassador to the UN in Geneva on Thursday.  The Czech Republic took over the European Union's rotating presidency from France on 1 January 2009.
 
The document details numerous recommendations issued by the UN panels on torture, elimination of discrimination against women, economic, social and cultural rights, rights of the child and elimination of racial discrimination in Tibet.
 
It also documents the UN rapporteurs' recommendations for the Chinese government to stop resettlement programmes and forced evictions in Tibetan areas, arbitrary detention, torture and killing of innocent Tibetans.
