Dalai Lama Approves Proposal for Emergency Meeting
Phayul[Friday, September 19, 2008 14:28]
New Delhi, September 19 – The Dalai Lama has approved the proposal submitted by the Tibetan Parliament in exile and the Kashag for the emergency meeting to be held in November.

Talking to the Voice of Tibet radio service, Prof. Samdhong Rinpoche said that the proposal was approved, and the meeting shall take place as per the proposal formulated and decided upon by the Tibetan Parliament in Exile.

On asked if the meeting will change the course of the official position of genuine autonomy, the first directly elected Kalon Tripa (Prime Minister) of the Tibetan government said he does not think so. “We are committed to our middle way approach and we will continue our efforts for a genuine autonomy within China’s framework, and that will not change. But this meeting surely will be a good platform of discussion for various opinions and views within the Tibetan community.”

Rinpoche said the November meeting is very important for all the Tibetans and that the representatives attending it must reflect the views of the general public from their localities at the meeting.

Rinpoche also said that the meeting is held to discuss the recent unrest in Tibet, and not aimed at garnering international support or to confront China.
