Former Speaker of the Tibetan parliament Pema Jungney attended the opening function as the Chief Guest. Speaking on the occasion, Jungney said that there needs to be unity amongst the Tibetans irrespective of one’s political stand. “Whether one supports the Middle Way Approach or independence as a political stand, it is important that there is unity within us, because it is ultimately for the Tibetan cause,” said Jungney.

He added that Tibetans, whether a supporter of MWA or Rangzen, must face China and not confront each other saying it would be futile to do so. “Mutual confrontation will harm the cause. Unity amongst our people will bring us swifter and closer to our goal.

Chinese scholar Prof. Ming Xia expressed his support to the Middle Way Approach, hoping that there would be dialogue between the China and the representatives of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Two organizations, Tibetan People’s Movement for Middle Way and Youth for Umaylam are jointly organizing the conference on Middle Way aimed at raising awareness amongst Tibetan youth on the Middle Way Approach and educating the Tibetan public about the official policy of the Tibetan government in exile, officially known an the Central Tibetan Administration.
