The Agreement of the Central People’s Government and the Local Government of Tibet on Measures for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet, or the Seventeen Point Agreement for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet for short, is the document by which the delegates of the 14th Dalai Lama, sovereign of the de facto independent state of Tibet, allegedly reached an agreement in 1951 with the government of the newly-established People\’s Republic of China on affirming Chinese sovereignty over Tibet.Chinese sources regard the document as a legal contract that was mutually welcomed by both governments and by the Tibetan people. Tibetan exile sources and international governments generally consider it invalid, as having been reluctantly or unwillingly signed under duress. The 14th Dalai Lama has repudiated the agreement on many occasions.
