EU urges China to respect Tibetan sentiments

Dharamshala, Sat, 29 Oct 2011 ANI

Dharamshala, Oct 29 (ANI): Thubten Samphel, a spokesperson of the Tibetan government-in-exile in Dharamsala, has said the European Union has appealed the Chinese government to respect Tibetan sentiments.

 

"We have no latest updates from Tibet but I think yesterday the European Union passed a resolution urging China to respect the human rights of the Tibet people. So our hope is that this resolution would have some impact on calming things down in Tibet," he told the media here.

 

Samphel further expressed deep his concern over the surge in protest activities among Tibetans around the world when reports came of young monks self-immolating themselves under China-ruled Tibet.

 

"There is no encouragement on the part of the central Tibet administration or from Tibetan public in exile to encourage these really desperate acts. But I think one question that is critical is why these Tibetans (are) resorting to such desperate acts and this situation arises from increased depression in Tibet," he added.

 

An estimated 80,000 Tibetans, along with the Dalai Lama, arrived in India in 1959 after an unsuccessful uprising against Chinese rule.
