  • VOA Tibetan

Around 133 parliamentarians from 30 parliaments around the world have called the G20 leaders to take a proactive role in resolving the Tibet issue.In a letter addressed to the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the parliamentarians have urged “the protection and development of the unique Tibetan identity” within the “pre-existing principles on autonomy as defined in the Constitution of the People's Republic of China”.

“It is essential that the G20 leaders take the initiative in convincing China of the necessity to resume negotiations with the Tibetan authorities, on the basis of the Memorandum on Genuine Autonomy presented by the Dalai Lama in 2008” said Matteo Meccaci, Chairman of the Tibet Inter Group in the European Parliament.

G20 summit will be held in Toronto Saturday and Sunday where world leaders including Chinese president Hu Jintao will participate.
