"I was completely appalled by the barbaric acts of the terrorists in Paris that ended lives of hundreds of innocent people and condemn these acts in the strongest possible words," said Mr Tsering in his message.

On behalf of Tibetan people inside and outside Tibet, we express our condolence to the families of the all those who lost their lives," he wrote.

"We Tibetans believe that all conflicts in this world should be resolved through dialogue and by non-violent ways and means. We not only abhor violence of any kind nor should these acts of violence be condoned," he added.

"As His Holiness the Dalai Lama has always said, the 21st century is the century of dialogue. We hope and pray that such acts are not repeated in the future in any parts of the world," he said.

Almost 130 people were killed in the French capital as a result of a series of co-ordinated gun and bomb attacks. At least 180 people are wounded, 80 of whom are in a critical condition, according to media reports.
