(TibetanReview.net, May01, 2015) – Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has described the lack of access to reliable and realistic sources of information to the Chinese people as one of the great obstacles to peaceful change in their country. The remark was made in a message he had sent to the 10th edition of an Interethnic /Interfaith Leadership Conference held in Washington, DC, over Apr 27-30.

He has also said the Chinese leadership should adopt more practical and realistic policies in order to address in a just manner the issues faced by Tibetans, Mongols, Uyghurs, and even the Chinese people themselves. He has added that change in China was inevitable, although it may take time.

Using force as a means to achieve harmony and stability, he has said, is counterproductive.

The message, dated Apr 25, was read by Mr Kaydor Aukatsang, Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to the Americas. Messages from members of US Congress were also read out. The head of the exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala, Sikyong Lobsang Sangay, also delivered a video message.

Participants in the conference included Chinese, Uyghurs, Mongols, Taiwanese as well as Tibetans from Dharamsala (including three exile Tibetan MPs), Taiwan and the United States.
