(TibetanReview.net, Sep19’19) – The Dalai Lama has on Sep 18 told a cross-party delegation of three German MPs that many Chinese leaders today recognise that their government’s Tibet policy had failed and were therefore open towards a more realistic approach.
“Now among the top leaders that kind of new thinking we find,” the Central Tibetan Administration at Dharamsala, India, quoted the exile spiritual leader of Tibet as saying on its Tibet.net website Sep 18.
The interaction took place when the delegation – made up of Frank Heinrich (Chemnitz) (CDU/CSU), Ms Ute Vogt (Social Democratic Party of Germany) and Ms Margareta Bause (Green Party) – called on the Dalai Lama at his home in Dharamsala.
The Dalai Lama has also spoken of having been encouraged by the fact that “Today, China has become the greatest population of Buddhists. About nearly 300 million Buddhists, many of them follow Tibetan Buddhism. So now there is some positive situation. Meantime in the free world especially in Germany, every occasion you express your concern about Tibet issue and Tibetan cultural heritage and environment. It’s very useful.”
