China lays down the three stops to prove Dalai Lamas goodwillJuly 7th, 2008 - 1:01 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi , July 7 (ANI): A spokesman of the United Front Work Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee has reportedly conveyed a message to the Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to respond with sincerity and prove his intention to promote goodwill with the Chinese.
Du Qinglin is reported to have told the Dalai Lama’s representatives, Lodi Gyari and Kelsang Gyaltsen that the Dalai Lama should openly and explicitly promise and prove it in his actions not to support activities to disturb the upcoming Beijing Olympic Games, not to support plots to fan violent criminal activities, not to support and concretely curb the violent terrorist activities of the “Tibetan Youth Congress” and not to support any argument and activity to seek “Tibet independence” and split the region from the country.
Xinhua quoted the spokesman as further saying that the four “not-to-supports” are detailed measures of the three “stops”. They are more practical and more convenient for the Dalai Lama to follow, he added.
“If the Dalai Lama fails to meet such simple and rational requirements, it will be impossible to have necessary atmosphere and condition for next round of contact,” he said, adding that the door for dialogue is always open.
As required by the two representatives, the central government agreed in principle that the next round of contact may be held before the end of this year, he said.
During their stay in Beijing last Tuesday and Wednesday, the two representatives met with central government officials, including Du Qinglin and two deputy heads of the department, Zhu Weiqun and Sitar, toured the Olympic stadiums, and talked with some Tibetologists (ANI)
