Czech stand on human rights violation in Tibet reserved - Bursik
CTK[Thursday, October 12, 2006 23:59]
Prague, October 11 - Greens party chairman Martin Bursik said that the Czech Republic´s attitude to human rights violation in Tibet is too reserved, after he took breakfast with the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama today.

Bursik said that economic pragmatism has prevailed over pushing through the integrity and inalienability of human rights in the world, Greens spokesowman Eva Roleckova told CTK.

The Dalai Lama took part in Forum 2000 conference that sarted in Prague on Sunday.

This has been his sixth visit to the Czech Republic. The conference was held under the aegis of former Czechoslovak and Czech president Vaclav Havel.

Roleckova said that the Dalai Lama and Bursik discussed global responsibility for the environment and the "irreplaceable role" of Green parties in its pushing in world politics.

Bursik criticised the fact that local authorities hang out Tibetan flags every year, while on the other hand top representatives of the state do not table human rights violation in China and specifically in Tibet in their negotiations with Chinese officials.

"The Green Party will strictly insist on Czech foreign policy always including human rights in the agenda of negotiations with representatives of the countries in which human rights are violated," Roleckova said.

Greens deputy Katerina Jacques has initiated the establishment of a deputies´ Group of Friends of Tibet in the Chamber of Deputies that is to be formed this month.

The group will concentrate on human rights violations in Tibet being duly focused in Czech foreign policy and that the Czech public be informed about it, Roleckova said.
