TAIPEI: A press conference was held at the Taiwanese parliamentary building to announce the formation of a new Taiwanese parliamentary group for Tibet on 8 October 2016.

Taiwanese lawmaker Mr Freddy Lim, Chair of the Taiwanese parliamentary group for Tibet, explained the aims and objectives for establishing this parliamentary group. He said that this parliamentary group is a bipartisan group of parliamentarians from across the Taiwanese political spectrum who will collaborate and consolidate efforts to highlight the issue of Tibet in Taiwan as well as on the international stage.

Ms Xiao Mei Ching, Vice-chair of the parliamentary group, said that she has attended the World Parliamentarians Convention on Tibet several times and expressed her continued support for Tibet.

The chief guest at the press conference was Mr Dawa Tsering, Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the Office of Tibet based in Taipei. He thanked the Taiwanese parliamentarians for their support to Tibet and said that the Tibet issue is not restricted to independence or the Middle Way alone. It is also about minority rights, sinicisation of Tibet through population influx, destruction of Tibet’s environment, human rights, religious freedom and cultural preservation, etc. He added that all these issues need to be looked into with a special focus.

Members of the Tibetan Parliament Mr Lobsang Dakpa and Ms Tsering Lhamo, who were specially invited by the Taiwanese parliamentary group for Tibet, also addressed the press conference. They explained the political situation of Tibet and called for a collective effort to raise the issue of Tibet and more collaboration between the Tibetan and Taiwanese parliaments.

Ms Gu Laxi, Ms Yui Mei Ngul and Mr Ton Yi Kang, members of the Taiwanese parliament also spoke at the press conference. The Thank you speech was delivered by Mr Tashi Tsering, President of Tibetan community.

A delegation of Taiwanese parliamentarians led by Mr Freddy Lim visited the Central Tibetan Administration in September. During their visit, they met Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay and other leaders of the Tibetan movement.

The newly formed Taiwanese parliamentary group for Tibet has more than 30 members from various Taiwanese political parties including the New Power Party, Kuomintang party, Democratic Progressive Party, etc.
