October 25, 2010

Once China experiences more openness then the
Tibetan issue can be easily resolved, says Dalai Lama.

Communist China has no option but to be more open
and follow the global trend of freedom and
democracy which will pave the way for "easy
resolution" of the vexed Tibet issue, the Dalai Lama has said

"Once China experiences more openness then the
Tibetan issue can be easily resolved. Sooner or
later the People’s Republic of China will have to
go along the world trend, i.e., freedom and
democracy," the exiled Tibetan leader said

The 75-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader spoke
after receiving the International Conductor Award
yesterday in Cincinnati in Ohio in the US

The USD 25,000 prize was donated back to the
National Underground Railroad Freedom Centre by Dalai Lama

1.3 billion Chinese people have every right to
know the reality and they also have the ability
to judge what is right and what is wrong, Dalai said

Reacting to Beijing’s sharp criticism to Chinese
dissident Liu Xiaobo being awarded the 2010 Nobel
Peace Prize, Dalai Lama, himself a Nobel laureate
said for the last few decades he had always
supported the Chinese people’s right to seek more
openness, more justice and less corruption,
including issues relating to the Tiananmen events

He said he always supported them, some times with
moral support and in other cases expressing openly

When the Nobel Committee announced the peace
prize for Liu this time, it was logical for him to be overjoyed and happy

He said that this award is not just to one
individual, but along with Liu’s name there were
thousands of Chinese intellectuals and ordinary
people who were really carrying on the struggle for freedom

Dalai Lama said these are not necessarily against
the Chinese Party authorities but that they
really wanted more openness, more transparency
and freedom. He said these were normal aspirations

During the 1959 Tibetan uprising against Chinese
rule in Tibet, the Dalai Lama fled to India,
where he established a government in exile in Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh

In India, I had a new freedom, both mental
freedom and physical freedom. "So I am a free man," he said.
