Under Secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy and Human Rights and US Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues Uzra Zeya, who is on a Nepal visit, inspected the Tibetan refugee camp in Jawalakhel on Saturday.
A team of Zeya along with the deputy chief of the US embassy reached the Jawalakhel this afternoon.
During the visit, she had inquired about the physical and other facilities like health and education in the camp.
She also held interaction with the Tibetan refugees living in the camp.
On the occasion, some Tibetan community leaders told Zeya that some Tibetan refugees have been deprived of even basic human rights due to lack of ID cards.
Earlier on Wednesday, Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi, during the meeting with Home Minister Bal Krishna Khand, had expressed her concern over the visit of US Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues Zeya to Nepal.
The government has not given 'refugee identity cards' to the Tibetan refugees since 1995.
Refugee leaders in Nepal have said that the Tibetan refugees have been deprived of employment due to lack of refugee identity cards.
According to a source at the Home Ministry, Zeya is expected to urge Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and other high-ranking Nepali officials to issue refugee ID cards to the Tibetans who have not got the ID card at the earliest.
