Jia Qinglin, Li Changchun and Zhou Yongkang, members of the Standing
Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee
Political Bureau, visited a large-scale theme exhibition, "Tibet, the
Past and the Present," on Wednesday.

The exhibition shows the backwardness of Old Tibet and the development
and progress of New Tibet, as well as the inseparable, historic links
between Tibet and the Chinese nation.

Tibet is in its best period in history and the exhibition shows the
great changes in the Tibet Autonomous Region in the political, economic,
social and cultural fields, said Jia, chairman of the National Committee
of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

Jia Qinglin, Li Changchun and Zhou Yongkang, members of the Standing
Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee
Political Bureau, visited a large-scale theme exhibition, "Tibet, the
Past and the Present," on Wednesday.

Li, who is responsible for the Party's ideological work, said the
exhibition exposes the darkness, cruelty and backwardness of Old Tibet
and the hypocritical face of the Dalai Lama as a "human rights
guardian," "missionary of peace" and "spiritual leader."

The historic materials show that Tibet has been an inseparable part of
China since ancient times, as the Chinese central government has
exercised effective sovereign rule over Tibet, said Zhou, the secretary
of the CPC Central Committee for Political and Legislative Affairs.
