We receive frequent correspondence regarding Tibet. Our officials maintain a regular dialogue with a range of Tibetan interest groups, and I met with a number of such groups in June.

We monitor the situation in Tibetan areas closely. We have ongoing concerns about restrictions on ethnic minority rights which we raise regularly with Chinese counterparts, most recently during the UK-China Human Rights Dialogue on 19-20 May 2014. We report on the situation in our Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy, and in updates to it.
