Dharamsala, Dec 17 (IANS) The Tibetan government-in-exile Monday congratulated Liberal Democratic Party leader Shinzo Abe on winning the parliamentary polls in Japan and hoped his government would continue support to Tibetans.
"On behalf of the Tibetan people, I would like to congratulate Shinzo Abe on winning the elections and wish him all the best as the next prime minister of Japan," Lobsang Sangay, the democratically elected leader of the Tibetan people, said in a statement.
Thanking the people and government of Japan for their long-standing support for democracy and non-violent struggle of the Tibetan people, he said: "I look forward to your continued support for the issue of Tibet."
