Dharamsala, November 15 - His Holiness the Dalai Lama welcomed the release of fellow Nobel Laureate and Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The Tibetan leader expressed hopes that the government of the People's Republic of China will release 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, currently serving 11 years of imprisonment in Chinese prison.

In a statement posted on the Tibetan leader's official website, the Tibetan leader said, "I welcome the release of fellow Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and extend my appreciation to the military regime in Burma."

The Tibetan leader who is currently touring Japan extended his "full support and solidarity to the movement for democracy in Burma" and appealed to freedom-loving people all over the world to support non-violent movements.

Meanwhile, the Tibetan parliament in exile also sent congratulatory message to Suu Kyi saying Suu Kyi's call for national reconciliation will pave way for true democracy in name and in practice in Burma.

"The Tibetan Parliament in Exile welcomes the unconditional release of Nobel Laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest. Suu Kyi's indomitable spirit to push for democracy in Burma even during the 15 years of her detention is an inspiration for millions of others who aspire for freedom and democracy," the Tibetan Parliament said in a statement Monday.

The TPIE also called on the Burmese Military Junta to release all other political prisoners including Min Ko Naing, U Gambira and U Khun Htun Oo.

The TPIE said Suu Kyi's thinking resonates the views of His Holiness the Dalai Lama that the 21st century is the century of dialogue. "We sincerely hope the Military Junta will open its arms and seek a lasting non-violent solution to the issues in Burma that will be beneficial for not only the people of Burma but the whole region."
