3. European envoy requested for Tibet


STRASBOURG, France, Jan 15 (AFP) - The European Parliament on Thursday
called for the appointment of a special European Union representative for
Tibet.

The official would be "responsible for doing everything possible to carry
out the Union's demands as regards the civil and political rights situation in
Tibet," it said in a statement.

The appointment would have to be made by the European Council and
Commission.

The Chinese government last month rejected plans to hold a referendum on
self-determination for Tibetans.
