A Chinese periodical to publish stories on Tibet

Dharamsala -- A Chinese periodical 'Tian an men
shi bao' published from Melbourne in Australia
will post stories about the plight of Tibet and its people.

Mr Rong Jie, Editor-in-Chief of the periodical,
made the announcement to publish Tibet-related
stories during a dinner reception hosted to Mr
Sonam Norbu Dagpo, Representative of His Holiness
the Dalai Lama in Australia, and Ms Dawa Dolma,
Sino-Tibetan public relations co-ordinator, on 12 August in Melbourne.

The reception was arranged by the Sino-Tibetan
Friendship Society, Chinese Democratic Movement
Organisation and publishers of the periodical in
Chinese 'Tian an men shi bao' and some Chinese from the mainland.

Mr Rong Jie in his address said, although Chinese
people can know about Tibet through the Chinese
website of the Central Tibetan Administration in
exile and other Chinese language websites, but it
is very rare to find in Chinese language of a
Tibetan individual's personal life story of
severe suffering under the repression of the People's Republic of China.

He expressed his belief that if in places where
Chinese people are living can write in Chinese
newspapers about the Tibetan people's real
stories, then the Chinese people can understand
the Tibetan cause better and know the true story of Tibet.

Representative Sonam Norbu Dagpo thanked Mr Rong
Jie and staff for their decision to include
Tibet-related stories in their periodical, which
is a widely distributed newspaper in Australia.
Representative lauded the success of Sino-Tibetan
Friendship Society in building friendly relations
and trust between the Chinese and Tibetan people.

Both the Democratic Movement Organisation and the
Sino-Tibetan Friendship Society aim to organize a
cultural exchange programme with Tibetans to understand each other better.

Representative Sonam Norbu Dagpo and Dhondup
Dolma were on an official visit to Melbourne from
11-15 August. They also met with the Tibetan community during the visit.
