International community should coordinate its approach on China: President Sangay
[Thursday, March 01, 2018 19:01]
By Tenzin Dharpo

DHARAMSHALA, Mar. 1: The President of the exile Tibetan government, known officially as the Central Tibetan Administration, has said that coordination of approach by international community is needed while dealing with an economic and political power house like China.

“It’s important that the international community coordinates (its) approach on China. It’s either China transforms you, or the world transforms China,” the head of the Tibetan polity told Japan Times last week when he was in Tokyo for an official visit.

Sangay who has been vocal about countries putting the Tibetan issue on the back burner in either fear of backlash or for economic interests with China said that such episodes bolster China’s relentless campaigns of muting freedom and basic human rights in his home country Tibet, that was annexed by communist forces back in 1950’s.

He reiterated his hope for the Chinese supreme leader to favourably handle the Tibet issue in his second term. “Xi Jinping is on a second term. Normally on a second term, you try to do something big, something for your legacy. That’s why it is the next five years that the international community should press China to find a peaceful solution on the issue of Tibet,” Dr. Sangay said.

However, Xi’s apparent intent to hold on to power beyond 2023 when his second term ends has many worried, suggesting a making of another leader who intents to hold on to power for a long haul and without challenge.

A research fellow at CTA’s think tank, Dr. Rinzin Dorjee, opined that Xi Jinping holding top spot in the Chinese leadership hierarchy after his second term could go both ways for Tibet. While expressing his hope for a favourable handling of the Tibet issue by Xi, he also wrote, “modern China is different as Xi’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has extended its hand to more countries than ever. Then the true intent of glorifying Xi and BRI internationally will make China the Middle Kingdom again. In the global competition for power China will create its own alliance to assert its policy abroad. In such scenario, the situation in Tibet will exacerbate under Xi’s rule.”
