WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) issued the following statement upon returning from Beijing, China and Seoul, South Korea:
“Last week, I expressed great concern about the current situation in Tibet in meetings with Chinese government officials and in a major policy speech on clean energy.
