Dharamshala, Nov. 27, 2009: Tibetan Prime Minister-in-exile Samdhong Rinpoche on Friday blamed China of emerging as a training ground for the militants.
Addressing a two-day workshop of the 115th session of Indian Federation of Working Journalists in Dharamsala, Rinpoche said, many Maoists go to China, get training, money and arms from there and spread terror on Indian soil.
“Terrorism is not confined to Pakistan. Many militants go to China for training. They (militant organisations) have offices in Beijing, Bangkok, where many of these so called Maoists go from here (India), get trained there, get money and arms from there and spread terror after coming back from there,” said Rinpoche.
The Tibetan PM, however, admired US President Barrack Obama”s concern about the Tibetan cause and said the closeness between China and US would not cause any harm to the Tibetan issue.
“Obama has done whatever he could and if something good comes out of it, then… but if there is no development even after his intervention, even then it is not going to harm the Tibetan issue,” said Rinpoche.
Obama had called for a resumption of dialogue between the Dalai Lama”s envoys and China to resolve the Tibet crisis during his just-concluded visit to Beijing.
The Tibetan government-in-exile said last week it was willing to talk to China after Obama”s comments.
Chinese officials and envoys of the Dalai Lama have held eight rounds of talks, but little of substance has been achieved. (ANI)
