(TibetanReview.net, Oct16’19) – President Lobsang Sangay of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) was on Oct 15 hosted a parliamentary hall reception by Senators of the Czech Republic whose capital Prague very recently cut its sister-city ties with Beijing over the “one China’ policy issue. The exile Tibetan leader was in the city to attend the Forum 2000 Conference.

The Senate’s First Vice President Jiří Růžička presented a glass lion statue, a symbol of the Czech state, to the CTA President. The reception was hosted by the Senate Vice-President Mr Jiří Oberfalzer. Others who attended the event included the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee Pavel Fischer, Chairman of the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee Miroslav Antl, and Senator Přemysl Rabas. Rabas is the Chairman of the Group of Friends of Tibet in the Czech Senate.

They also included Senate Vice-Presidents Miluše Horská and Jan Horník.

“With our sympathy for Tibet, we are commemorating the selflessness and fragility of our own freedom, our sense of belonging to those who helped us, but also to those whom we should now help”, Růžička was quoted as saying.

The Czech Republic not only hosts the largest parliamentary support group for Tibet in Europe but also has the largest support for Tibet at the public level, said the CTA on its Tibet.net website Oct 15.
