DHARAMSHALA, July 18: The Tibetan Prime Minister (Sikyong) Dr. Lobsang Sangay, at a special briefing to the media today, elaborated on the recently concluded 28th meeting of the Tibetan Task Force on Negotiations held in Dharamshala on July 15 and 16.

Sangay, who chaired the meeting, stated that the annual meeting is helpful in gathering information and brainstorming as to what we should do and plan. He also reiterated his administration’s commitment to resolve the Tibet issue through the Middle Way Approach.

“Middle Way continues to be our policy. CTA believes in Middle Way and it is the right policy as far as solving the Tibetan issue is concern. It is a win-win proposition,” he said.

The Tibetan Prime Minister, who assumed office for his second term after his win in the elections earlier in the year, stated that big changes are happening in China, Tibet and worldwide. Giving an example of Obama’s visit to Cuba, he said that Presidents in their second term usually deal in those matters, which are issued low-priority. “Historically Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin, former President of China, have dealt with the Tibet issue or initiated dialogue during their second term.

“We hope Xi Jinping, who is on the cusp of his second term, follow the suit and that he is able to solve the Tibet issue through dialogue with envoys of the Dalai Lama. It would be a valuable achievement for the Chinese government,” he said while adding that Sino-Tibet dialogue will be his administration’s utmost priority.

The Sikyong said, “In this discussion we deliberated about how the next American elections, development of the US-China relationship and Brexit mean for Tibet. It was an analytical discussion on how these international changes will effect Tibet in context with human rights, environment, political and Tibet issue in large.”

“This brainstorming session give us a lot of information, thus preparing the leadership. In coming months and years whatever happens at international event vis-à-vis China, we will be prepared. In that way it is very helpful,” he said.

He also explained that the reason behind the resignation of the two envoys in June 2012 was due to the deteriorating situation inside Tibet, owing to which they were unable to meet their counterparts for over two years since January 2010.

“We are ready. The envoys of the Dalai Lama are ready to meet the Chinese representatives anytime, anywhere,” Sangay concluded.
