China must respect freedom of Tibetans: Sangay
Dharamsala: The new Prime Minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile, Lobsang Sangay, on Saturday asked the
Chinese regime to respect the freedom of both the Tibetans and Chinese people.
"I can say with confidence that our exiled democratic administration is far superior to China`s colonial rule in
Tibet," Sangay said on the occasion of the 51st anniversary of Tibetan Democracy Day.
He said the people in Tibet live under harsh autocracy while "those of us in exile enjoy democracy".
Calling upon the Chinese regime to respect the freedom of both the Tibetans and Chinese people, Sangay said China cannot be a legitimate superpower without accepting the universality of freedom.
