Dharamshala: Kalon Norzin Dolma of the Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR), Central Tibetan Administration, today congratulated Australian Parliamentarian Warren Entsch on his re-election to the Australian Parliament in the recently concluded Australian general election.
Warren Entsch is the co-chair of the Australian All-Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet, and was also one of the first parliamentarians to wish DIIR Kalon Norzin Dolma following her appointment as a Kalon of the 16th Kashag in November last year.
In the congratulatory letter, Kalon wrote:
“It is my deep pleasure to extend my warm congratulations to you on behalf of the Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR) of Central Tibetan Administration on your re-election as the honourable member of the Australian Parliament from Leichhardt.
Your victory is a reflection of the Australian people’s trust in your service and a testament to the wonderful work that you do as the elected representative of the general public.
As the Co-chair of the Australian All-Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet, your support has been vital for the global Tibet movement to restore freedom and alleviate the sufferings of the Tibetan people inside Tibet under China. Hence, your re-election to the Australian Parliament is a source of hope and optimism for Tibetans.
On a personal note, I am grateful and deeply touched by your congratulatory letter on my appointment as Kalon for the Department of Information and International Relations in November last year. Despite the grim political and human rights situation inside Tibet, I take comfort in the fact that Tibet has passionate friends like you.
As you have mentioned in your congratulatory letter, I also look forward to meeting with you and discussing ways to resolve the Sino-Tibetan conflict and restore the dignity of the Tibetan people inside Tibet.”
