DHARAMSHALA, JUNE 6: “We want to express our support for the Tibetan people and democracy in Tibet,” Senator Mr. Petr Bratský, head of the Tibet Group within the Czech Senate said on Wednesday.

He said 644 Tibetan flags were hoisted across Czech Republic in schools, towns and cities hall on 10 March 2014.

Mr Karma Chophel speaking on behalf of the Tibetan Parliamentary delegation briefed the Senators about the present situation in Tibet. He also said the delegation had visited Belgium, Estonia, Poland and will be travelling to Slovakia, Austria and Switzerland. The delegation’s main objective was to thank Tibet supporters and lobby for the Tibetan issue.

In the evening, the delegation spoke at a public talk organized by Lungta, the Czech based Tibet Support Group, Potala, a Tibetan NGO and President Václav Havel library.

A reception was jointly hosted in honour of the visiting Tibetan Parliamentary delegation by Forum2000 and Prague City Hall.
