Tokyo, April 8: Japanese artistes in the field of movie entertainments and modeling, music and songs, writers and composers called for a `Direct talk between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Chinese government` at a press conference at Japan Press Center building at Kasumigaseki, Tokyo. Mr. Tatsumura Jin, a noted film director, Mrs. Shimamura, former Asahi Editor and Mrs. Yukawa Reiko, a famous song composer presided over the conference. It was attended by some thirty media groups representing national Televisions, News dailies, Magazines and Radios. Journalist from neighboring countries like Korea, Taiwan etc. were also present.

Mr. Tatsumura said that many artistes around Japan felt deeply concerned about brutal crackdown of peaceful demonstration by the Chinese authorities in Tibet. What prompted the artistes to come together was to voice against the injustice going on in Tibet before the world eyes. When the Chinese authorities kept criticizing His Holiness Dalai Lama as `a wolf in monk’s garb` and being a separatist etc., `many felt it’s time that responsible people in the society should come out and speak, else this might send a wrong message to the whole society. ` He said.

An extract from a documentary on His Holiness the Dalai Lama was shown to the media to let them have a preview of the person of Dalai Lama. Mrs. Shimamura and Mrs. Yukawa narrated their experiences about meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and said that he represents peace, tolerance and non-violence. They firmly objected to the Chinese authorities’ use of foul language against the person of Dalai Lama.

A statement made by some 56 Japanese artistes was read and distributed to the press. He said this statement would be sent to the Japanese Government and Embassy of China in Japan. The statement urged the Chinese authorities to stop the baseless criticism against Dalai Lama, as this will not help China. It called upon the China for an early negotiation with Dalai Lama to resolve the Tibet issue to mutual satisfaction. It also urged the Japanese government to call upon Chinese authorities to negotiate with Dalai Lama at the earliest.

Mr. Makino Seishu, former Chairman of Japanese Parliamentary Group for Tibet, Mr. Tsewang Nishikura, a Tibetan Doctor and Mr. T.G. Arya of Office of Tibet, Japan also attended to the questions put forward by the media.
