Before leaving for Canada Thursday, the Tibetan political leader will meet with important officials in New Delhi.
The Tibetan political leader (Sikyong) Dr. Lobsang Sangay will be in Halifax, Montreal and Ottawa in Canada for a six-day visit from 21-26 Nov.
On 21 Nov, Sikyong is scheduled to attend the prestigious Halifax International Security Forum in Halifax, Canada, where he will join world leaders from more than 60 countries, including the largest-ever US Congressional delegation led by Senator John McCain and Tim Kaine, Canada's foreign minister John Baird, former Israeli prime minister Eduk Barak, Turkish president Abdullah Gul, Japan's Vice-Minister of Defense Hideshi Tokuchi, NATO's Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow, India's High Commissioner to Canada Nirmal Verma and India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson M.J. Akbar, among others.
The Forum is being held against the backdrop of many serious global security issues and will bring together individuals who are on the ground facing consequential local threats, writers who challenge and influence the world's thinking on security, and decision-makers who make tough choices.
Following his visit to Canada, Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay will tour Vermont, Wisconsin, Chicago, New Mexico, Santa Fe and Boston from 27 November – 5 December. During his time in the US, he will address members of the Tibetan community and meet with the Governor of Vermont (27 November).
