Dharamshala: Speaker Pema Jungney today wrote to the Dr Tsai Ing-Wen, offering his congratulations on behalf of Tibetans in and outside Tibet and Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile, for being elected as the President of Taiwan for the second time with a landslide victory.
He wrote,”The people of Taiwan holds a high esteem for His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama as their patron and had invited His Holiness several times in Taiwan. But after 2016, His Holiness’ visit to Taiwan was blocked by Chinese government and thus I hope this closed tie will re-open to benefit the people of Taiwan who have deep faith in His Holiness.”
“Besides, the people and the government of Taiwan has been a great supporter of Tibetans and the just cause of Tibet for a long time. I hope it will be continued under your leadership as well. We are sincerely seeking for genuine autonomy within the framework of the Chinese constitution.”
“Tibetan parliamentary delegation comprising of four members are presently in Taiwan to extend warm greetings to you and your government and to update the critical situation going on inside Tibet under the repressive rule of the Chinese authorities.”
