Tibetan Parliament Appreciates Italian and European MPs for Raising Tibet issue

30june20102Dharamshala: In appreciation of the efforts of the newly established International Network of Parliamentarians on Tibet (INPaT), the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile recently sent letters to the network’s co-chairs, the Honourable Mr. Matteo Meccaci, MP and Honourable Mr. Thomas Mann, MEP Germany.  Meccaci and Mann had raised issues surrounding Tibet with world leaders.  Additionally, they had encouraged G8 leaders to intensify their pursuit of a solution to the Tibet-China conflict through dialogue between the Dalai Lama and the Chinese government.

Among other efforts, the INPaT sent a letter to the Prime Minister of Canada, lauding the Canadian government’s involvement with Tibet.  The letter clarified the Dalai Lama’s views on the Tibet situation by explaining that his preferred Middle Way Approach aims to achieve autonomy for Tibet, while simultaneously working under the constitution of the People’s Republic of China.  Ideally, this Middle Way Approach would benefit the current and long-term interest of both China and Tibet.  Another issue discussed in the letter were international concerns surrounding Tibet’s delicate environment.

INPaT urged G20 to consider three primary proposals: to undertake independent, international scientific assessment of the changes in Tibet’s environmental policies, to engage native Tibetans, particularly nomads, in environmental decision making, and to encourage broader collective governance and decision-making of Tibetan aquatic resources by including stakeholders both regionally and locally. 

Pleased with the current international support, Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile Deputy Speaker Dolma Gyari states: “We are encouraged by the unwavering support of INPaT. Since 2008, seven members of the G8 have already expressed support for the dialogue between the PRC government and representatives of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to resolve the ongoing differences. I believe that G8 and G20 leaders have far more concrete support to offer to bring more effectiveness in resolving the issue of Tibet peacefully through dialogue".
