Tibetans-in-exile seeks international support against China
Tibetans-in-exile living here on Friday asked for international support for their struggle against Chinese rule.
While addressing a meeting of Tibet support groups from more than 40 countries Tibetan Prime Minister Lobsang Sangay said: "Now, 74 Tibetans have died, and how many more have to die before the world speaks out, before the Chinese Government realize.
"Tibet is a litmus test for China and the world. By supporting Tibet, the international community will clearly show what they stand for," said Sangay.
Pointing out the non-violent approach of their 60-year long struggle Sangay said the international community should now recognize and focus on Tibet.
The meeting called by the self-declared government-in-exile, aims to explore ways to solicit international support against Chinese occupation and about 200 delegates are participating in a three-day meeting of Tibetan support groups
More than 70 Tibetans have immolated themselves to mark their protest against Chinese regime since 2009.
