Dalai Lama’s Special Envoys Respond to Criticism of their Trip to China - 2002-10-22

The Dalai Lama’s special envoy Gyari Lodi Gyaltsen and Kalsang Gyaltsen met with press monday and said that they welcome criticism from some people who said that they have been outfoxed by the Chinese to take a trip to China and Tibet. Lodi Gyari said, “This shows that democracy among Tibetan people is alive and strong; there should be a healthy discussion.” Lodi Gyari led a Tibetan delegation last month to China and Tibet and also had discussions with Chinese leaders in Beijing.
