Exile Tibetan government optimistic about resumption of talks
Phayul[Friday, January 22, 2010 12:49]
Dharamsala, January 22 – The exile Tibetan government has said it will sidestep the blame game with China and seek the earliest resumption of talks, reported the Asia Times Online.

"The Tibet issue needs to be resolved through dialogue and negotiation between the Tibetan and People's Republic of China leadership," Samdhong Rinpoche, prime minister of the Tibetan government in exile, told Asia Times Online. "I wish Tibetans' hopes will become a reality."

"Everybody has the right to hope for better a relationship between Dharamsala and Beijing because the Tibet issue needs to be resolved through dialogue and negotiation between the Tibetan and People's Republic of China leadership," Rinpoche was quoted as saying.

The former academician said the envoys of His Holiness the Dalai Lama "are in regular contact with their counterparts in Beijing" as this "falls within their responsibilities".

"The dialogue process may hopefully take a new shape this year," Rinpoche said. "I will not say that I have great expectations, but I would say that we have hope that some improvement will come in the process. We only demand people's support and unity regarding this issue and hope it will be resolved.”

"I do not need to say anything else, whatever is in progress is going good, and things will be resolved," he said.

Thubten Samphel, a spokesperson for the Tibetan government in exile, said it was high time the Chinese leaders talked with the Dalai Lama's envoys. The government in exile will adopt a new approach to gain the support of as many Chinese people as possible for its cause.

Asked what new efforts his government will make to achieve the resumption of talks with Beijing, Samphel said: “We will maintain what we have been doing. One new effort is to approach as many Chinese people as possible to spread our message. Our struggle is not anti-China or anti-Chinese. It is for the interests of us Tibetan people. If we can persuade one Chinese person, this will have a multiplying effect in the Chinese community, so that they could have a better understanding of our cause and become more sympathetic.”

Talks between Dalai Lama's envoys and Beijing came to a standstill after a "Memorandum on Genuine Autonomy for the Tibetan People” submitted by the Tibetan side at the eighth round of talks met with Beijing’s derision with the Chinese side calling it a demand for ‘half-independence’ and ‘disguised independence’ or ‘covert independence’.”

The Tibetan Task Force is currently holding its 20th meeting, since it was formed in 1999 to mainly assist the envoys of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in their talks with China, here in Dharamsala, the seat of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile in north India. Exile Tibetans supporting the Middle Way Approach of their government seem optimistic that the task force meeting will be followed by resumption of talks with China soon. However, with the sensitive Tibetan National Uprising Day little more than a month away, Tibet observers and pro-independence activists view that the resumption of talks any time before it will not come as a surprise for them.
