Posted on: 13-03-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

Despite Chinese discomfort, Obama raised the Tibet issue with Yang during the meeting at his Oval Office in White House.

"The President expressed his hope there would be progress in the dialogue between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama's representatives," said the White House in a statement issued after the meeting.

During the meeting, Obama noted that promotion of human rights is an essential aspect of US global foreign policy.

"On human rights, the president noted that the promotion of human rights is an essential aspect of US global foreign policy," the White House statement said.

Earlier this week, the United States had expressed concern over human rights situation in Tibet and said only "a substantive dialogue" with the Dalai Lama's representative could bring a lasting peace in this region.

"We believe that substantive dialogue with the Dalai Lama's representatives that makes progress in bringing about solutions to longstanding issues is the best way to achieve true and lasting stability in Tibet," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs had said on Tuesday.
