On October 6, 1913, the British organized a conference in Simla, India, to discuss the issue of Tibet's status, and on October 13, the first working meeting was held. In order to control the conference process, the British fixed the venue in India.

Attending the conference were Henry McMahon, a British diplomat and an administrator in British India; Ivan Chen of the newly founded Republic of China; and the Tibetan government at Lhasa.

The Tibetan plenipotentiary introduced six articles that proposed Tibet would be full free from China and Qinghai, and large tracts of land in Sichuan Province would be allocated to Tibet.
