The Tibetan Women's Association (TWA) is hosting a five-day seminar
on issues related to Tibet in Manali, Himachal Pradesh.peaking to the
media persons on Monday, Kirti Dolkar Lhamo, President of the TWA,
mentioned that numerous topics concerning Tibet would be deliberated
upon at the conference.

"So, here we have 29 regional chapters gathered. So, right at the
moment, we are discussing that during the ninth general board meeting
whatever the resolution is passed, for the feet forward, we are
discussing right at the moment," said Lhamo.

She further said they believed that there is a perfect solution to
the problems faced by Tibetans.

"Tibetan women stand for this medieval approach of standees. And,
through this medieval approach, we have full belief that it is
solvable, it is the issue for the benefit of the Chinese and the
Tibetan people," added Lhamo.

The first meeting of the working committee of the TWA took place at
Dharamsala in 1985, a year after the re-establishment of the
association in-exile.

Midway through their term, executive members of the central and
regional chapters of the TWA congregate to assess initiatives
undertaken since the prior meeting and strategize for future endeavours.

second largest Tibetan voluntary forum with the tag of an NGO. (ANI)
