The statement issued by the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile said: "In response to the felicitation to the newly elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom His Excellency David Cameron by the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile, His Excellency expressed that:
"This Government will continue to urge the Chinese to make progress towards meaningful autonomy for Tibet. We will continue to impress upon the Chinese the importance of substantive dialogue with the Tibetan representatives in good faith. This is the only way to bring about a lasting and peaceful solution to the problems in Tibet.
The Government considers that underlying issues can only be resolved through meaningful dialogue between the Dalai Lama's representatives and the Chinese authorities. Our interest is in long term stability, which can only achieved through respect for human rights and greater autonomy for the Tibetans."
On behalf of all the Tibetan people inside and outside Tibet, the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile extends its sincere thanks for the supportive response."
