Dharamsala, October 19 - Exile Tibetan prime
minister has said that the stability in India --
China relationship is of utmost importance to
peace in Asia and the world. The first Tibetan
prime minister directly elected by the people was
speaking Sunday after the 56th convocation of the
Gujarat Vidyapeeth in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad.

Rinpoche said the tension between India and China
will not last long and will be resolved soon.
"Off late China has become aggressive in its
relations with rest of the world. Its dispute
with India has also become a cause of concern,"
Rinpoche said."But I don't believe that this
tension between India and China will continue for
long. I think slowly and gradually it will be resolved."

The former academician and speaker of the Tibetan
parliament said his government is committed to
the middle way approach of seeking genuine
autonomy through negotiations. Reacting to a
question on ‘growing impatience among Tibetan
youths’ he said violence is not the solution to
any problem. "People who are in favour of violent
methods to resolve the issue of Tibet are in
minority. Violence cannot bring solution to these
issues; it only complicates them. The eye-opening
examples are of Sri Lanka, Israel, Palestine,
Iraq and Afghanistan. We still believe in our
non-violent agitation for Tibet's autonomy and will continue with it."
