USCIRF delegation visits China

WASHINGTON, The United States Commission on International Religious
Freedom (USCIRF) is in China August 14-28 for a visit that was agreed to by
the United States and China in the December 2002 U.S-China bilateral human
rights dialogue. The trip has been a high priority for the Bush
Administration, and most recently was raised by Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice during her July meetings in Beijing. The delegation will
have meetings in Beijing, Chengdu, Kashgar, Urumqi, Lhasa, and Shanghai.

The USCIRF is an independent, bipartisan federal commission that advises
the President, Secretary of State, and Congress on how to promote religious
freedom and related human rights around the world. It was created by the
U.S. Congress in the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (IRFA). It
consists of nine appointed Commissioners.
