Washington, June 20: There appears to be no resolution to the Tibetan problem in sight as the Chinese authorities refuses to engage the Dalai Lama in a peaceful dialogue, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives has said.
 
 "In India and Nepal, there are approximately 70,000 Tibetan refugees who have escaped Chinese repression over the dangerous Himalayan mountain passes," Nancy Pelosi said in a statement to mark the World Refugee Day.
 
"There continues to be no resolution in sight as the Chinese government refuses to engage directly with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in a peaceful dialogue," Pelosi said as she recognised the struggle and plight of refugees who are escaping dangerous and repressive situations throughout the world.
 
"In Burma, the humanitarian situation remains dire; it is estimated that there are approximately 540,000 internally displaced people and over 150,000 refugees," she said.
 
"In recent years, a large scale Burmese military offensive has caused unquantifiable suffering and a worsening refugee situation along the border with Thailand," Pelosi said.
