When asked about the Tibetan issue H. E. Fu Ying stated that "the door for talks is always open, it has been open for years - for decades, and there are difficulties and there sincerity from the Chinese side to continue the dialogue."
She further stated that "Tibet is a very remote region and it is important for Tibet to find its unique way of making economic progress, and at the same time preserve its culture and traditions. It's a difficult process. At the same time the Tibetan culture is very unique, very valuable. Recently there was a National Conference on Progress in Tibet, and there will be lot of investment and lot of help. 37% of the Tibetan land is already placed under National Reserves protection, in order to protect the ecological environment. I like Tibet, I am in love with the land, and I am planning my holidays in Tibet this summer."
Speaker of the Assembly of Tibetan People's Deputies (ATPD), Mr. Penpa Tsering, who briefly met H. E. Fu Ying after a lecture in Oslo, Norway, said "she seemed to be sincere and if what she said is meant with the right spirit, it could be a possible positive shift in the Chinese authorities' approach to continue the dialogue for a negotiated settlement of the Tibet issue." Mrs. Chungdak Koren from the Norwegian Tibet Committee also attended the meeting.
