Dutch Parliament Backs EU Special Representative for Tibet - 2003-12-26


Dutch Parliament unanimously passed a resolution calling the government for the appointment of a EU Special Representative for Tibet along the line of the US adoption of Special Coordinator for Tibet.

Further, the MPs urged the Dutch government to hold discussions with other EU TROIKA partners in the coming weeks to reach an EU position on the question. The Dutch MPs expressed strong support for such a position in the light of the deteriorating human rights situation in Tibet and in particular, the continued influx of the Chinese settlers into Tibet threatening the very survival for Tibetan identity and culture.
