India Acknowledges that Tibet is Part of China
« on: April 16, 2017, 01:45:50 AM »
India has officially confirmed that Tibet is part of China. India can be considered as Tibetan and the Dalai Lama biggest supporter and sponsor. Not only they provided financial assistance to the CTA, but India also allowed Tibetan government in exile to stay within its domain. The fact that India, their host country has acknowledged that Tibet is part of China means that even their biggest supporter does not see the future in Tibetan government in exile.

Previously, the Dalai Lama has also confirmed that Tibet is part of China.

As events unfolded, it has become clear that the CTA should build rapport with China since Tibet is part of China and their future is depended on China.

No change in India's position on Tibet being part of China: MEA

NEW DELHI: India on Friday asserted that there is no change in its position on Tibet being part of China and it will continue to seek a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable solution to the vexed boundary issue.

External affairs ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said, "Let me make it absolutely clear that there is no change whatsoever in the Government of India's policy towards the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China.

"Similarly, our approach to seeking a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable solution to the boundary question remains unchanged."

He was responding to a query on whether the visit of the Dalai Lama to Arunachal Pradesh signals a change in India's policy on Tibet or on the boundary negotiation issue.

India's position on Tibet has been that it is a part of China.

However, after Tibetan spiritual leader's recent trip to Arunachal Pradesh, China had accused India of violating its commitment on the Tibet issue and warned that allowing the Dalai Lama to go there will have "negative impact" on the settlement of the border dispute.

All of the big & powerful countries agree that Tibet is part of China. Take USA as an example, no matter how much disagreement, USA will dare not change their policy and agrees that Tibet is part of China. China has grown very strong in the past 20 years, and they insist others to follow 1 China policy. Most will agree for various reasons.

There is no future for CTA, not at least for long term. What CTA officials are doing now, is to keep stirring the emotions, and continue to get donation from westerners, and CTA officials will just pocket as much for their own benefits. CTA officials are just milking as much as they can before there is nothing left for them.

Dear Kris

I agree with you. I think the CTA also knows that there is no future for them. The Tibetans in exile will either assimilate with the culture of their host countries or return to Tibet China. If the CTA's objective for Tibet cause is to preserve Tibetan culture, as the Sikyong often said, then the reason Tibetan cause is still relevant is because the CTA would like to preserve Tibetan culture. If the Tibetans in exile assimilate with the local culture, definitely the objective of cultural preservation is defeated. However, if the CTA work to build rapport and trust with the Chinese and obtain meaningful autonomy from them, they will have better success to preserve Tibetan culture.

Otherwise, why anyone would like to maintain their status as a refugee for almost 60 years and forgo the benefits of being a citizen of a sovereign nation?

Right from the beginning, India saw Tibet as a part of China via the Panchscheel Agreement signed in 1954 by Nehru himself. And again in 2003, then Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee explicitly affirmed India's stance which regards Tibet as a Chinese region when he visited Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. In 2014, when Lobsang Sangay was invited to attend the inaugural ceremony of the incoming Indian PM Narendra Modi, the Central Tibean Administration played it up as if India was changing its position on Tibet. Three years later the recent statement by External affairs ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay confirms that there's really no change in India's policy towards Tibet and it is unlikely that there will ever be one.

India which shares a border with China has so much more to gain by being friends and allies with the Asian giant whereas the Tibetan government in exile has nothing to offer. If anything the Tibet issue is simply a card in a whole deck which India will play at the right time for concessions with China.

If there is any change, it is that the Tibetan people's welcome in India is wearing thin. In 2016, BJP President Amit Shah called off his meeting with the Dalai Lama. In the same year, the Indian Government denied approval for some participants to attend an anti-China conference in Dharamsala which is the Dalai Lama and CTA's own turf. And its not just India and more and more countries shun the Tibetan exile government and the Dalai Lama. Recently the meeting between President Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping saw the US President stating clearly his intention of being China's friend.

Looking at the trajectory of the 'Tibetan issue', its a mis-guided missile that is off course, out of fuel and out of purpose.

It sound like a big slap to CTA but at this time who doesn’t want to be friend with China. Even USA President has a good time with the China President during his visit and was a great meet up between this two giant countries. I think this relationship is more worrying to CTA. Just the matter of time the westerner will pull off their funding to CTA. Basically politic is about benefit. What can CTA give compare to China? This is obvious right.

Tibet is part of China this is the fact. If CTA still in the denial state that is too bad and is not going to help Tibetan in anyway. CTA should really start being friend with China before it’s really too late. There is no reason for other country to go against China by supporting CTA and some already declare Tibetan as China citizen.

CTA has been wasting the time and fund ever since residing in India. There would even spend their time and fund on separating and discriminating their own people by using Dorje Shugden practice. The world is watching how CTA split their own people and with what reason people would have confident for CTA to rule their government? This just make the situation more worst for CTA.
