10march201028Dharamshala: The 21st meeting of the Task Force on Negotiations (TFN) began today in Dharamshala, under the leadership of Kalon Tripa Professor Samdong Rinpoche. The Task Force was established in 1999 in order to aid the Envoys of Tibetan delegation with Sino-Tibetan dialogue.

The meeting begins after the conclusion of the ninth session of the XIV Tibetan Parliament in Exile (TPIE), during which the TPIE unanimously reaffirmed its support for His Holiness the Dalai Lama's Middle Way Policy.

The Middle Way Policy was introduced by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his address to the United States Congressional Human Rights Caucus on September 21, 1987, when he announced his Five Point Peace Plan for Tibet. The Policy implies that the TPIE is willing to negotiate for a solution not entailing the complete restoration of Tibetan independence, as long as cooperation and understanding in Sino-Tibetan relations are established.

The meeting will last three days, concluding on March 25.
