Tibetan PM writes to Secretary Kerry
Phayul[Monday, April 15, 2013 16:26]
DHARAMSHALA, April 14: The Prime Minister of the exile Tibetan administration, Dr Lobsang Sangay, wrote to the US Secretary of State John Kerry urging him to raise Tibet issue and the current crisis in Tibet during his first visit to China.

"China has neither employed the constitutional mechanism at its disposal nor has it shown the political will to resolve the Tibet issue peacefully. Prompt resumption of dialogue between the Chinese and Tibetan leadership, which has been stalled since January 2010, will give new hope to Tibetans and begin the process of finding a solution that works for both the sides," Sangay writes.

"Promotion of human rights and raising the Tibet issue is not only a morally right thing to do, but also a more open China that respects human rights will make for a more stable partner and will be less of a threat to international peace and security."

In his letter Sangay writes that the exile administration is 'committed to engaging in meaningful dialogue with the Chinese government anywhere, at any time'.

The Tibetan prime minister also urged Kerry to move quickly on appointing a new US Special Coordinator for Tibetan issues.

Last week, Sophie Richardson, the China Director at the Human Rights Watch (HRW), wrote to Secretary Kerry to raise the critical human rights situation in Tibet.

"Despite the increasing death toll, there is still no evidence to suggest willingness on the part of Chinese authorities to address the grievances articulated either by those who have self-immolated or more broadly by Tibetans, including those that represent basic human rights violations," HRW letter said.

China and the exile Tibetan government have held a number of dialogues to solve the issue of Tibet but have produced no concrete results. The last talk was held in January 2010.
