The special international Tibet support groups meeting began today at a highway Resort in Gurgaon near the Indian capital. The meeting briefed the members of the world wide Tibet supporters of the present situation inside Tibet. The Tibetan supporters were briefed about the outcome of the six day special meeting of Tibetan exiles.

Presiding over the opening function as the chief guest was Kalon tripa professor Samdhong Rinpoche. This three-day meeting is being convened by the Indian Core group for Tibetan Cause in view of the grave situation in Tibet and the current international situation.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Representative in New Delhi, Mr Tenpa Tsering, read out a message of His Holiness to the meeting.

Emphasizing the importance of the Special Meeting in Dharamsala, Kalon tripa Samdong Rinpoche said “Majority of the participants to the meeting opted for the existing Middle Way approach, so we would continue on this approach. “
He thanked the Tibet supporters and requested all the Tibet support groups for their constant support.

Exile Tibetan parliament’s Speaker Karma Chophel said, “we collected views and opinions not only of exile Tibetans, but also from people in the Tibet.”

He also added that Tibetan struggle is one against the wrong policies of Chinese government and not against the Chinese people. We believe that just as Tibetan people, Chinese people are also suffering.

The first Tibet support group meeting was held in Dharamsala in 1990. The Tibet support groups met for the fifth time in Brussels in 2007.
