DHARAMSHALA, August 17: Ngawa Tsegyam, Secretary (Chinese) at the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama(OHHDL) said Chinese people’s support is inevitable in resolving the Tibet issue at the plenary session of the Second 5-50 Youth Forum held at the Hotel Devdar here.

Speaking on the theme “Tibet and the People’s Republic of China: Establishing Constructive Engagement and Negotiation,” he said the shift to Middle Way Approach (MWA) in 1974 was adopted after careful considerations, saying that it has strengthened the bond between Tibetans inside and outside Tibet, between Tibetans and Chinese people and Chinese officials.

Addressing the general perception among Tibetans that the ten rounds of Sino-Tibetan dialogues have more or less failed, he claimed that these meetings have led to many small results that remain overshadowed by the lack of success in achieving the key goals.

He said the current stalemate in the Sino-Tibet dialogue is a result of China’s reluctance to resolve the Tibet issue, People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) tendency to equate the Tibet issue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and the existence of section of opportunists in the Chinese power structure that cast aspersions on the sincerity of MWA.

“It is crucial to understand China and Tibet well in order to actualize Sino-Tibet dialogue in the future, as is retaining unity among ourselves, continued lobby for international support and most importantly forging good relations with Chinese people and convincing them of resolving the Tibet issue with urgency,” he added.

He reiterated that it is not right to carry out any activities in exile that might cause further repression to the Tibetans inside Tibet.

Tenzin Dorjee, a commissioner of United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), another keynote speaker at the event covering “Young Voices in the Tibetan Freedom Movement: Communications, Advocacy and International Relations” also called for strengthening internal unity.

“There are many ways for a Tibetan to identify oneself, as being from a certain region of Tibet, belonging to a particular religious’ sects, gender or ideology, but these should not precede being a Tibetan first.”

The second day of “Second Five-Fifty Youth Forum: Shaping Tibet’s Future” held talks on “Inclusion of and responses to Tibetans inside Tibet and Diaspora,” and “CTA’s Leadership Toward the Five-Fifty Vision- Creating Visionary Leadership and Resource Mobilization,” that featured more than a dozen young speakers.
