Deal with China from a position of strength: Dalai Lama aide
TOI[Thursday, December 16, 2010 11:12]
New Delhi: As Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao landed in the capital on a three-day visit, the Tibetan government-in-exile said India should deal with China from a position of strength as Beijing only ‘recognises power and respects strength’.

Speaking at a seminar on ‘Rethinking India’s Sino-Tibet Policy’, the representative of the Dalai Lama in New Delhi, Tempa Tsering, questioned the massive infrastructure build-up by China on the border and said India should take note of the recent developments in the Tibet region. “If you look at history, China has an insatiable taste for more land and has an ambition to dominate others. There are not the basis to build trust and mutual confidence,” Tsering said, pointing out that China had outstanding border issues with all its neighbours.

The senior aide to the Dalai Lama questioned China’s intention to increase the pace of infrastructure development in Tibet and said that most of it was directed towards increasing military muscle. “A large number of airports have been built in the name of infrastructure but where are the airline to transport people? If you look at road infrastructure, where is the public transportation and buses that people can use?” he said.

Tsering said a number of missile bases had come up in Tibet and the rail network was being expanded to reach Nepal and the Sikkim border, raising questions on the real intentions of China.

Tsering alleged the railway network was being used to populate the Tibet region with Han Chinese. “Everyday, the train comes in with 4,000 Chinese people and returns with 2,000. The remaining stay back in Tibet where the Tibetan people are being made a minority,” he said.

He was speaking at a seminar organised by four Tibetan non-governmental organizations to coincide with the Chinese premier’s visit. The discussion was chaired by Major General (Retd) Vinod Saighal. The speakers were Mohan Guruswamy, Director of Centre for Policy Alternatives, social activist Jaya Jaitley and Tsering, who holds the rank of a minister in the Tibetan Government-in-Exile and is also the Representative of the Dalai Lama in New Delhi.
