Sydney - As a first step towards promoting better understanding and harmony, the Chinese and Tibetan Friendship Association-based in Australia, initiated a meeting between the two communities at Manly, a hub of tourism and social meeting place near Sydney on 19 July.

Mr Kamal Sarma, long time friend of both the Tibetans and the Chinese, helped in arranging the meeting.

Many Chinese and Tibetan community members, who are supporters of the strengthening of relationships between the two communities, attended the meeting.

They tied orange bands on each others' wrist to strengthen protection, friendship and harmony.

"The winter day in Manly supplied glorious sunshine to set the scene for this warm gesture of sincerity from one community to the other. One step in a mutually beneficial journey, as friendship always is," said Tenzin Gaden, president of the Chinese and Tibetan Friendship Association.

The friendship association between Chinese and Tibetans was formed following suggestions from His Holiness the Dalai Lama to promote harmony between the two communities during his visit to Australia in June.

The association was started on the occasion of 73rd birthday of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Ms Mei Leech, a famous artist from China based in Australia and who is also the president of the association said: "I propose that we (Chinese and Tibetans) act together to eliminate the misunderstanding of the Chinese majority, and to dissolve their resentment and adversarial sentiments."

"Only in this way can Han Chinese and Tibetans co-exist harmoniously in peace, which is the basis of worldwide harmony between different nations," she said during the function to mark the formation of the Chinese and Tibetan Friendship Association.
