(TibetanReview.net, May09, 2018) – President Lobsang Sangay of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has on May 7 praised the European Parliament for having passed the most number of resolutions on Tibet. He made the remark in his welcome address at a felicitation in honour of a three-member delegation from the European parliament.

The delegates – MEPs Thomas Mann, Csaba Sogor and Ramon Tremosa – are members of the Tibet Interest Group in the European Parliament.

“As far as parliamentary resolutions are concerned, European Parliament has passed most resolutions on Tibet, perhaps ahead of United States also. For that, we are very grateful and we want to urge you to continue to pass more resolutions and extend your support for many years to come,” the CTA-run Tibet.net May 7 quoted Sangay as saying.

He has called the delegation’s presence at Dharamshala a powerful “message of hope, justice, freedom and liberty” to Tibetans inside Tibet.

He was stated to have urged the MEPs and the European Parliament to officially support the CTA’s Middle Way Policy and dialogue between representatives of the Dalai Lama and China for a peaceful resolution of the Tibet issue.

Mr Mann, Chair of the Tibet Interest Group, has expressed hope that the visit will reinforce the hope and trust of the Tibetan people in the European Union and Parliament.

“In EU, we are the voice of human rights and nothing else. In European Parliament, we always have the opportunity to have clear resolutions with big majorities,” he was quoted as saying.

He has also said, “We want to show our European solidarity to make it clear for your rights, language, culture and fair dealings. We are on your side, and we will never be silent.”

Sogor has expressed hope that the Tibetan issue will prevail and advised the Tibetan people to be prepared for changes unforeseen, dictated by sudden political situations.

Tremosa felt that the Catalonian people in Spain could imbibe peaceful resistance from the Tibetan movement. The autonomous Spanish territory was recently in the news for its movement and unofficial referendum for independence.
