French Senate meets Tibetan PM
Phayul[Friday, April 19, 2013 15:56]
DHARAMSHALA, April 19: The Parliamentary Tibet support group in the upper house of French parliament at the Senate received Dr Lobsang Sangay, the prime minister of exile Tibet, during his visit to the country on 17 April.

The Group for Information on Tibet has released a statement on receiving the Head of Tibetan government in exile upon his arrival in Paris and expressed their full support on resuming the dialogue between the exile Tibetans government and the Chinese.

"Senators in the Tibet group support all efforts that France can do to help resume dialogue between the Tibetan government in exile and the Chinese Government, and to improve the situation of Tibetan people. It recommend the President of the Republic and the Minister of Foreign Affairs to officially receive Sikyong as other leaders of democratic countries have already done,"

A dinner reception in honour of Dr Sangay was held and the Special Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Europe Kelsang Gyaltsen, by the President of the Tibet Group Senator Jean Francois Humbert and six other senators, who are also members of Tibet group.

On meeting with the Sangay, Senator Humbert expressed his joy in receiving him as a representative of the entire Tibetan people.

The President of the Tibet Group in Senate also informed the Tibetan prime minister about the group's recent work vis-a-vis Tibet, particularly about Senate Tibet Group's Initiative in successfully adopting a resolution in favour of Tibet in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the European Committee.

Sangay in turn thanked the Senators and underlined the significance of this encounter as French people's belief and faith in the fundamental principles of liberty, equality and brotherhood.

He said that the exile Tibetan administration has invested decades in the principles of non-violence and democracy and it is up to the free world, including France, to live up to their fundamental principles and values by supporting the just cause of Tibet.

The democratically-elected Tibetan leader reiterated the his consistent position of discouraging any kind of drastic actions, including self-immolations while fully supporting the aspirations of Tibetans inside Tibet and those of self-immolators, which he said was return of His Holiness the Dalai to Tibet and freedom in Tibet.
