Seventeen Point Agreement

The Agreement of the Central People’s Government and the Local Government of Tibet on Measures for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet is called the Seventeen Point Agreement for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet. It was signed between 14th Dalai Lama with the government of the newly-established People’s Republic of China on affirming Chinese sovereignty over Tibet on 23 May 1951. The first point was : The Tibetan people shall be united and drive out the imperialist aggressive forces from Tibet; that the Tibetan people shall return to the big family of the motherland – the People’s Republic of China.
