The Sikyong is meeting important, apparently Indian government, officials from Aug 22 to 24, according to the exile Tibetan administration’s Tibet.net website Aug 22. It was not stated which officials he will meet to discuss what issues.

In Hamburg (Germany), he is joining Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, for celebrations on Aug 26 marking the 30th and 25th anniversaries, respectively, of the Tibetan community in Germany and the Tibet Initiative Deutschland. He is also joining the Dalai Lama at a Sino-Tibetan conference in the city on Aug 27.

The Sikyong is also visiting Boston on Aug 26 to “meet important officials” and Washington DC over Aug 29-30 to address the Tibetan community and the meeting of North American Tibetan Association.

Kalon Tsering Dhondup is to speak on the exile administration’s middle way approach of seeking autonomy under Chinese rule for Tibet during his visits. He will discuss about the exile Tibetans’ Green Book contributions to the exile administration, including about the simplification of procedures and the roll out of a new Green Book later this year.
