Dharamshala Nov. 7 – His Holiness the Dalai Lama met Japanese politicians yesterday and expressed hope that Japanese supporters will take part in an emergency meeting for Tibetan exiles to be held in India later this month, Kyodo News reported citing sources close to the lawmakers.

The lawmakers who met the Tibetan leader are Yukio Edano, a member of the Democratic Party of Japan who formerly served as chairman of the main opposition force's policy research council; Tokuichiro Tamazawa, a member of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party and former farm minister; and Shu Watanabe, a DPJ member of the House of Representatives. They all belong to a cross-party league of lawmakers who share concern about Tibetan issues.
