Campaign launched for recognition of the Tibetan Government in Exile
Phayul[Monday, February 09, 2009 11:49]
Dharamsala, Feb. 9 - Fifty European Tibet Support Groups have launched a campaign for the implementation of the European parliament’s resolution of 6 July 2000. The campaign calls on Member of European parliament to vote for a new resolution calling for the recognition of the Tibetan Government in Exile by June 2009 European elections. The campaign calls on the European parliament to implement a resolution that had already been passed.

The campaign, translated in six languages - French, English, Italian, Spanish, German and Polish – has the support of 50 Tibet Support groups including various Tibetan communities in Europe.

On 6 July 2000, the European Parliament passed a resolution calling on "the governments of the Member States to give serious consideration to the possibility of recognising the Tibetan Government in exile as the legitimate representative of the Tibetan people if, within three years, the Beijing authorities and the Tibetan government in exile have not signed an agreement on a new Statute for Tibet, through negotiations organised under the aegis of the Secretary-General of the United Nations".

After the deadline of July 2003, the European Parliament was expected to assess the objectives and to reformulate its recommendations accordingly through a new resolution. This, however, did not happen and on 8 July 2003, the Tibet Intergroup of EP held a meeting to discuss the way forward. According to a TIN (Tibet Information Network) report (15 July 2003), "the option of a new resolution by the European Parliament was maintained. However, it was also decided that in consideration of the two delegations' visits and the positive contacts established with Chinese officials, no unnecessary pressure should be exerted."

The campaign draws attention of Mr. Thomas Mann, President of the Tibet Intergroup of EP, to submit a draft resolution, and Mr. Hans-Gert Poettering, President of European Parliament, to put on the agenda a new vote.

Online Petitions call on MEPs to vote for a new resolution, in accordance with the commitments of the European Parliament and the terms of the resolution of 6 July 2000.
