On the occasion of the upcoming birthday of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, members of the European Parliament, the Commission, the Council as well as Tibet Support Groups and NGOs came together in Brussels. During an impressive ceremony with Tibetan songs, Tashi Phuntsok, the Representative of His Holiness, appreciated the support for the Tibetan way.
As representative of the European Parliament, I gave an overview over our work with resolutions, initiatives and monthly meetings. Last year in September 250 participants from more than 50 countries attended a Conference in Brussels. We organized a Conference on the reincarnation of His Holiness as well as a Conference on Chinese Counter Terrorism-Policy in the European Parliament.
Tibet is and will remain on our political agenda: Freedom of religion, language, culture and Tibetan identity – without human rights violations.
