The Dalai Lama has been officially invited to speak at the European Parliament on December 4. The President of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Pöttering, told Thubten Wangchen, Director of the Tibet House Foundation in Barcelona, that the Dalai Lama has been officially invited to report to the Parliament to talk about his intentions regarding the Tibet-China issue.

Pöttering officially received Thubten at the headquarters of the camera in Brussels on September 23.

Thubten presented before Pöttering 30 thousand signatures collected with the "SOS Tibet" campaign and urged him to facilitate a serious dialogue between the Dalai Lama and the Chinese president, Hu Jintao.

The German MEP Thomas Mann, Chairman of the Tibet Support Group in the European Parliament, Spanish MEP, María Badía, Yangdutso Yangkartsang, President of the Tibetan community in Belgium; Tenzin Wangmo from Bureau du Tibet in Brussels,and Marcin Libicki, President of the Committee on Petitions of the European Parliament, were also present at the meeting.

During the meeting Pöttering expressed concern with the current situation in Tibet and assured his support for a peaceful solution to the Tibet issue. Pöttering was one of the main sponsors of the resolution adopted by the majority in the European Parliament in April this year, which condemned the Chinese government's brutal crackdown on Tibetans in the aftermath of March 10 protests.

Thubten Wangchen, while thanking Pöttering and the European Parliament for their support, said that non-violence and truth remain the most powerful tool for the Tibetans, and shall surely help the Tibetans achieve their goal.
