Tibet: German Greens adopt Tibet Resolution

According to a belated information reaching here, the German Green Party Congress adopted a Tibet resolution on October 3, calling on the Chinese government to release Tulku Tenzin Delek, a Tibetan spiritual master condemned to death on the false charges of masterminding bomb blasts, and condemning what it describes as "creeping cultural genocide" and environmental destruction in Tibet.

Adopted unanimously with five abstentions, the resolution lashed out at the European Union countries' lukewarm stand on the issue of Tibet at the annual UN Human Rights Commission, saying the EU countries' decision neither to propose their own resolution, nor to co-sponsor the US proposal translates inadvertently into an indirect support to China's lobby for "no-action" motion.

It called on the German government "to explicitly and firmly request the Chinese leadership, in particular Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao, to negotiate with the Dalai Lama for a peaceful resolution of the Sino-Tibetan conflict".
