(TibetanReview.net, May13, 2018) – President Lobsang Sangay of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) at Dharamshala, India, has on May 11 called on President Mr Norbert Kartmarnn of the Hessian Parliament and also Prof Dr Lorz, the Minister of State, at the Hessian State Chancellery in Frankfurt, Germany.
The CTA-run Tibet.net said May 12 that he briefed the two leaders about the CTA’s middle way policy of seeking autonomy, not independence, for Tibet under the current Chinese rule. He has also spoken about the difficulties the exile administration faced in garnering international support for the policy due to pressure on government leaders and others from China.
While in the state parliament, President Lobsang Sangay was also stated to have met with Mrs Hofmann, Deputy Chairman of the SPD faction, as well as other members of the state parliament.
President Sangay is on a five-day visit to Germany, beginning May 11, to address a Thank You Germany Programme at the Tibet House in Frankfurt and the General Assembly of Tibet Initiative Deutschland (TID), which has been campaigning for the Tibetan people’s right to self-determination since 1989.
