Dalai Lama calls special meeting to discuss TibetSeptember 13th, 2008 - 1:18 pm ICT by ANI
Dharamsala, Sept 13 (ANI): The Dalai Lama has called a special meeting of Tibetan exiles in November or December to discuss political unrest in Tibet this year and the future of the Tibetan movement.
Samdhong Rinpoche, Prime Minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile has sent a letter to direct the speaker to commence a special meeting of the Tibetan people representatives including the parliament members.
“The situation inside Tibet, international scenario and ongoing dialogue with People Republic of China are very complex issues that need to be discussed among the people,” Rinpoche said.
The special meeting, the opening session which would be addressed by the Dalai Lama, would be attended by Tibetan leaders, intellectuals and non-government organizations chosen by the Tibetan parliament-in-exile.
The meeting of Tibetans comes after months of anti-China protests across the world, sparked off by unrest in Tibet in March, which was aggressively suppressed by China. (ANI)
