Dharamshala — Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay left Dharamshala yesterday for a week-long visit to the United States and Canada.

On May 12, Dr Sangay will take part in a dialogue with Chinese scholars and students in Washington DC. The dialogue is organised by Initiatives for China, a grassroots political movement established to promote a peaceful transformation to democracy in China.

Dr Sangay was specially invited by Dr Yang Jianli, founder and President of Initiatives for China, in the hope of building trust and cooperation between the Tibetan people and Chinese communities across the world.

Apart from the dialogue, Sikyong will inspect the diplomacy training for officials of the Central Tibetan Administration's (CTA) offices in Washington DC.

Following this, he will leave for Toronto, Canada where he will attend a gala with Canadian dignitaries. He will also give a public address to the Tibetan community of Toronto.

Sikyong's final visit is to New York, where he will discuss matters of concern for Tibet with officials of the city.

He will return to India on May 18.
