Dharamsala, September 21 – His Holiness the Dalai Lama has said he was confident that he would return to Tibet one day.

The Tibetan leader currently on tour in Hungary was speaking to the Hungarian Parliament in Budapest Monday.

"I'm an optimist, I think I will return to Tibet with a Chinese passport," AFP quoted the exiled Tibetan leader as saying. The Dalai Lama reiterated his position of seeking a genuine autonomy for Tibet within the People’s Republic Of China.

"The Chinese leaders sooner or later have to realise that they must start some sort of political liberalisation, or otherwise they will lose the world's trust," the Dalai Lama told Hungarian MPs. "A solution must be found that is good for both China and Tibet."

He also met with the 30-member Tibet Parliamentary Group as well as the vice-president of the European Parliament Laszlo Tokes.

“At 16 I lost my freedom and at age 24 I lost my country”, said the Tibetan leader who was made an honorary citizen of Budapest on Saturday. “For the last 51 years, I remained a refugee.”

Recalling the October 1956 Hungarian revolution against the Soviet rule, the Dalai Lama said he was in Tibet during that time but emotionally felt very close to those Hungarian freedom fighters.

His Holiness said that Hungarian lawmakers should visit Tibet personally to see the situation themselves.

In the afternoon, the Tibetan leader addressed the students and faculty of the Central European University that has students from 100 countries and faculty from 40 countries.

His Holiness will leave for Passau, Germany, today.
