Tibetan government-in-exile to urge China to come to negotiating table

Dr Lobsang Sangay, President, Central Tibetan Administration, tells Nayanima Basu that the Tibetan government-in-exile is going to urge the Chinese government to come to the negotiating table to solve the Tibetan issue. He said with increasing might and aggression of the Chinese government countries are hesitating to support the Tibetan cause. He said unless one understands what is going on in Tibet, one cannot understand China.

A report - Cultural Genocide in Tibet – brought out by The Tibet Policy Institute highlighted the areas where acts of genocide have been and are still being committed. According to Dr. Sangay, these are religion, language, the forceful removal of Tibetan nomads and China’s continuing population transfer onto the Tibetan Plateau.

The 2017 Freedom House report says that Tibet is one of the least free countries in the world. Beijing’s oppression of the Tibetan people is whitewashed by white papers.

“Policies relentlessly carried out in these four areas have robbed the Tibetans of their culture and language and have damaged their traditional way of life. The influx of Chinese migrant workers, facilitated by the new railway line and an administration in favour of the migrants, are reducing the Tibetans to an increasingly disenfranchised minority in their own land,” he says.
