Polish Parliamentary group for Tibet calls on China for immediate negotiation with Dalai Lama

Setting up of the Polish Parliamentary Group for Tibet

Dharamsala, February 11: The Polish Parliamentary group for Tibet has, on the occasion of the Tibetan New Year (Losar), February 7, 2008, issued a statement to call on China to enter into "immediate negotiation” with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his envoys in order to reach a satisfactory solution on both sides concerning the Tibetan issue.

Polish Parliamentary Group for Tibet has been set up last year during the 6th term of Sejm of the Republic of Poland (Polish Parliament).

The parliamentary group's statement says its members "are convinced that the Middle Way of His Holiness Dalai Lama" which seeks "genuine autonomy for Tibet within the Chinese borders, is the only pragmatic, perspective and, what is seen as the most important and peaceful solution for the Tibetan issue".


Following is the statement issued by the Polish Parliamentary Group for Tibet, Parliament of the Republic of Poland

7th February, 2008
The First Day of the Tibetan New Year (Losar) 2135

We would like to inform with a great pleasure that the Polish Parliamentary Group for Tibet has been set up in the 6th term of Sejm of the Republic of Poland (Polish Parliament).

Similarly, to our activity in the previous 5th term, we are going to appeal to the authorities of the PRC to engage into immediate negotiations with the Nobel Peace Laureate, His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama of Tibet and his envoys in order to reach a satisfactory solution for both sides, concerning the Tibetan issue.

For almost 60 years, i.e. since the People Liberation Army invaded Tibet in 1949-1950, both the representatives of the Tibetan Diaspora and international NGOs informed the world about the Human Right violations and religious freedom decreasing in Tibet.

We express our deep concern that desperate Tibetans resistance to such condition can cause the situation worsening and provoke the permanent source of trouble in the area and, as the consequence, in the whole more and more globalized world.

We believe that the forthcoming Olympics in Beijing is the perfect occasion for China as the 21st century authorities to make the historical gesture of reconciliation expected by the international opinion and, in the name of peace, take the hand reached by Dalai Lama, who is found the only right leader by 6 million Tibetans, despite of their being tortured indoctrinated, denationalized and condemned to emigration, and who is admired as the unquestionable moral authority and the head of the Tibetan Buddhism by the whole world. Governments and Parliaments of the free democracies, especially those of Central Europe, severely treated by the totalitarian regimes, observe with anxiety the increasing economic and military Chinese power. In their opinion, such a gesture can bring the PRC nothing but advantages.

We are convinced that the Middle Way of His Holiness Dalai Lama, i.e. the genuine autonomy for Tibet within the Chinese borders, is the only pragmatic, perspective and, what is seen as the most important and peaceful solution for the Tibetan issue.

The old Chinese proverb says: "If one moves one step backwards, the space of the earth and of heaven will increase." May the forthcoming New Year bring the illustrious, spiritual tradition, as well as the ancient wisdom back to China.
