Inaugurating a year-long ‘Thank You India’ campaign marking 60 years of Chinese “occupation” of Tibet and the Dalai Lama coming to India, the president of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) said the security of India “partly depended” on the “situation” in Tibet.
“We thank India for its support in past six decades to our cause and also appeal to it to support us politically and make Tibet its core issue,” he said.
Asserting that the Tibetans are in India because of the support of Indian government and people, Sangay said, “We are a success story and it has been a great journey, thanks to India and its people.”
The security and stability in China as well as India depends on the safety and stability in Tibet, he said.
“Sixty years back, we lost our country to Chinese occupation. We do not want other countries to face the same consequences,” he said.
Replying to a question on Doklam, the CTA president said that going to the United Nations could be one option for Bhutan who lays claim on the region where Chinese and Indian armies have faced a stand-off.
