DHARAMSHALA, April 21: The democratically-elected Tibetan political leader Dr Lobsang Sangay yesterday spoke at the Conference of the presidents of Tibetan communities organized by Geneva based Tibet Bureau in Boldern, Switzerland.

The conference was also attended by over 30 delegates from 11 Tibetan communities and members of exile Tibetan parliament from Europe.

Addressing at the conference, Sangay highlighted the importance to educate governments, parliamentarians, media and the general public about His Holiness the Dalai Lama's devolution of political authority to the democratically-elected Tibetan leadership of the exile Tibetan administration.

PM also apprised the gathering about how the Tibetan government in Dharamshala can assist Tibetan communities in Europe to preserve and promote Tibetan culture, religion and language in their respective countries. Sangay added that the promotion of democracy and dialogue further strengthens the exile establishment and the issue of Tibet in the generations to come.

He urged the delegates to lobby governments and parliamentarians to encourage the Chinese government to resolve the crisis in Tibet. And also emphasized the exile Tibetan administration's firm commitment to the Middle Way Approach and the three principles of his administration - unity, self-reliance and innovation.

Given the increasingly critical situation in Tibet which has seen 115 Tibetans setting themselves on fire in Tibet calling for freedom in Tibet and return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile, the PM said each Tibetan as well as Tibetan communities in Europe must do as much for Tibet as they can.

Following the conference of President of Tibetan communities, Sangay addressed at the first Europe Tibetan language Teachers' Conference.

Over 50 delegates, including teachers from Switzerland, United Kingdom, France, Belgium and Austria attended the the meet organized by Geneva-based Tibet Bureau.

Sangay appealed the teachers to work closely with Department of Education of the Tibetan government-in-exile to formalize the language textbooks based on the local needs and situation.

'Continue your service to the society and to the Tibetan children,' Sangay said.
