European Union's Top Lawmaker Supports Resumption of Talk on Tibet

October 13, 2010

Central Tibetan Administration (CTA)
October 7, 2010

Brussels -- As leaders from the European Union and China met for the
13th EU-China summit in Brussels on 6 October, the vice president of
the European Parliament called for the immediate resumption of talks
between the Chinese leadership and His Holiness the Dalai Lama's
envoys towards resolving the issue of Tibet.

"On Tibet, McMillan-Scott encourages China to resume talks with the
Dalai Lama's representatives immediately and EU High Representative
Baroness Ashton to meet with the Dalai Lama, leading to the
establishment of an EU Special Representative to Tibet," said Mr
Edward McMillan-Scott, EP vice president for human rights and
democracy, in a press release issued on 6 October.

The EP vice president also expresses hope that the UK's coalition
government will revoke the Labour administration's de facto
recognition of China's sovereignty over Tibet.
