Dharmsala Calls on Supporters Not to Protest Jiang’s US Visit - 2002-10-02

The Tibetan government-in-exile has called on supporters not to mount protests during Chinese President Jiang Zemin’s visit to the United States and Mexico later this month. The move is aimed at creating a conciliatory atmosphere for future contacts between China and Tibetan exiles. “I want to urge all Tibetans and friends of Tibet to refrain from public actions like rallies and demonstrations during President Jiang’s visit to the United States and Mexico,” said Samdhong Rinpoche, prime minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile.
