MEXICO
CITY: Apart from attending the Mexican Tibet Support Groups workshop in
Morelia from February 11 to 13, the CTA’s Liaison Officer to Latin
America, Tsewang Phuntso, spoke on Tibet in Mexico City and Morelia,
the capital of Michoacan State in Mexico. In Morelia on 14
February, Tsewang Phuntso spoke on the preservation of Tibetan culture
in exile at the Latin American University (Universidad Latina de
America).  The talk was jointly organised by the university’s
undergraduate programme on international relations in collaboration
with the Pensando en Tibet (Tibet Support Group) in Morelia. Despite
the Valentine Day, around 80 students and faculty members attended the
talk and spent more than two hours in the evening listening to the talk
as well as posing questions on various aspects of the Tibetan life. Before
delivering the talk, Tsewang Phuntso also had a very cordial meeting
with Dean of the University, Mr Luis Roberto Mantilla Sahagun. During
meeting, Mr Luis Roberto assured Tsewang Phuntso that the university
would provide necessary forum for the students to learn about different
aspects of the Tibetan people’s life as well as to understand the
teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama on human values and his
contribution to the human society.  In return, Tsewang Phuntso assured
Mr Luis Roberto of his full co-operation in materialising this
initiative.  As a goodwill gesture, Tsewang Phuntso also signed the
visitors’ book of the university.   The university currently
collaborates closely with the Pensado en Tibet (Tibet Support Group) in
Morelia, some of whose members are alumni of the university.  Earlier
on 8 February, Tsewang Phuntso also spoke on the topic of “Tibet Today”
in Mexico City to the members of the Casa Tibet Mexico.  The talk
followed by questions and answers lasted for 2 and half hours and was
attended by around 120 people. Also read:Three-day Mexican Tibet Support Groups’ annual workshop
