DHARAMSHALA, Jan. 28: The President of the exile Tibetan government, known officially as the Central Tibetan Administration, Dr. Lobsang Sangay on Saturday in the Japanese capital of Tokyo said that the narrative on China is changing for the good, in that nations are on the defensive to Beijing’s threat in their nation.

The Harvard educated Tibetan statesman was speaking at the welcome reception in honour of his visit to Japan organized by the Liaison Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Tokyo. Japanese dignitaries, including members of parliament, philanthropists and Tibet supporters attended the event, CTA run Tibet.net reported.

Dr. Sangay said, “I have been saying for the last 7 years that what happened to Tibet could happen to you and will happen to you. Many leaders in Europe, Latin America, South Africa and Australia, have now realized how China threatens by spreading its tentacles in their social, culture, political affairs. So the narrative on China is changing and this is an assertion on the part of different countries to speak for Tibet, human rights and democracy and criticism of the Chinese government.”

“Though the Czech Republic is a small country and faces very strong pressure from China’s influence in its business, politics and universities, it has decided to fight back and challenge China by forming the largest Tibet support group in its parliament in whole Europe with 51 members. Similarly, in Australia, for the first time leaders from all the political parties and cabinet ministers from the ruling government came to attend the Thank you Australia organized by the Central Tibetan Administration. Other countries like Canada followed suit,” he further said.

The head of the Tibetan polity has made frequent visits to the strategically crucial Asian nation, particularly in his second term in office. Japan which has the largest Tibet Parliamentary Support Group in the world is an important platform for the Tibetan President whose main agenda, many say, is rekindling relations with Beijing to ultimately gain grounds for a political resolution.

Dr. Sangay reiterated his call for dialogue with Chinese counterparts, support for the ‘Middle Way Approach’ and emphasised the urgent need for human rights for his fellow countrymen in occupied Tibet.
