DHARAMSHALA: The chair of the EU Human Rights Subcommittee of the European Parliament, Barbara Lochbihler, has criticised the Chinese government over the human rights situation in Tibet.
Ms Lochbihler urged Beijing to resume dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama towards finding a lasting solution to the issue of Tibet.
She said there should be a systematic change in the annual EU-China human rights dialogue to make it more result-oriented.
The situation is Tibet continues to remain grim as more than 63 Tibetans have self-immolated since 2009 in protest against the Chinese government’s repressive rule. The self-immolators have called for freedom for Tibetans and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The Central Tibetan Administration has repeatedly appealed to the Tibetans inside Tibet not to take drastic actions.
