A spokesperson for the organisation stated that Dr Sangay expressed his desire for close cooperation between Vietnam and Tibet to founder, Vietnamese freedom fighter, Nguyen Thi Ngoc Hanh, at the meeting in Dharamshala on Friday, November 9.
Mother of four, Ms Ngoc Hanh, who in 2001 attempted to self-immolate in San Francisco during a visit from Deputy Prime Minister of Vietnam, Nguyen Tan Dung, and who has been jailed in Britain, The United States and Vietnam for anti-Vietnamese government activities, expressed her admiration for the Tibetan political leader, describing him as: "a bright example for Tibet and also for the people in the world who love their own countries."
Addressing her host, she added: "I can see the big welcome to bring about a better life for our two countries. I am sure peace will come to these countries on a day not very far away."
Dr. Sangay replied that he must work even harder to get what was needed for Vietnam and Tibet to obtain freedom, and to help those countries which depend on him.
The meeting was also attended by Vietnam-Tibet Alliance Fighting for Freedom president, Phuntsok Wangdu, vice president, Thupten Tenzin, and the Central Tibetan Administration's information secretary, Dicki Chhoyang.
