MsZurich: – 16 July, Ms:  Maya Graf, the Speaker of the Swiss Parliament, met with Mr. Penpa Tsering, the Speaker of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile based in Dharamsala in Zurich yesterday.

The two speakers met informally over lunch in Zurich. Mr. Penpa Tsering briefed Ms. Maya Graf of the present situation inside Tibet and his meetings in Italy and Switzerland.

According to the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), Ms. Graf had officially invited and received His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the Swiss Parliament on 15 April 2013 during the latter's visit to Switzerland.

Prior to her election as the Speaker of the Swiss Parliament last year, she met Sikyong Dr. Lobsang Sangay in November 2011 in Bern. She had visited Dharamsala in 2003 and has been a member of the Tibet Group within the Swiss Parliament for a long time.

On 13 July, the Tibetan community in Switzerland and Liechtenstein organised a Question and Answer session with Speaker Mr Penpa Tsering.

Mr Tsering called on Tibetans to pay more attention on the developments on the Tibetan issue so that they can more effectively explain the Tibetan issue. He said big changes were taking place in Tibet, China and within the Tibetan exile community.

The Speaker also spoke about the Middle-Way Approach and the support for this policy from both international community and Chinese people.
