Shimla, Oct 29 (ANI) -- Young Tibetans held a
meeting here to discuss independence of Tibet and ways to achieve it.

At least 30 Tibetan scholars in-exile assembled
for the two-day meet regarding the Mc Mohan Line
dividing India, Tibet and China. These scholars
standing for freedom of Tibet said they believed
that they were re-visiting the independence of
Tibet through the Simla agreement signed in 1914.

After the meeting they said that India should not
trust China after Beijing condemned the visit of
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Arunachal Pradesh.

"It is utmost important that a group of young
Tibetan scholar intellectuals have decided to
gather in Shimla which is also a very significant
place in history of Indian and Tibet together.
Especially of the Mac Mohan line agreement that
we have agreed upon due to which Arunachal has
been recognised by Tibet as part of India. So
when Chinese has condemned India not only of his
holiness's visit to Arunachal Pradesh but also of
your Prime minister's visiting , that also shows
Chinese deep intention on their policy of India.," said Karma, Tibetan scholar.

One of the scholars also claimed the meeting was
held to reinforce the importance of 1914 Shimla Agreement.

"The importance of revisiting Shimla with the
independence of Tibet is directly related to
Arunachal Pradesh, where India claims Arunachal
Pradesh as a part of India and here we reinforce
the importance of 1914 Shimla Agreement, which
was signed between Tibet and British Empire and
today India inherits that power," said Tenzin
Tsundue, Tibetan scholar and activist.
