The Tibetan government-in-exile has celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Tibetan people’s uprising against the Chinese government.

The ceremony took place on Sunday at a temple in the northern Indian city of Dharamshala, where the Tibetan government-in-exile is headquartered.

Thousands of Tibetans and their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, fled to India after the uprising.

Representatives from 13 countries and regions attended Sunday’s ceremony. They observed a minute of silence for the Tibetan victims of China’s crackdowns.

Lobsang Sangay, the prime minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile, said the Chinese government has deprived the Tibetan people of every right and oppressed them for the past 60 years. He said Beijing is trying to eradicate the Tibetan civilization from the Earth.

Sangay urged China to resume dialogue. He said his government is prepared to resolve the Tibetan issue through talks.

Tibetans held a protest march against China in Dharamshala on Sunday.
