Amidst continued tensions between the Tibetans and the Communist Chinese authorities, there has been a surprise suggestion by a Chinese official that China must work for better relations with Tibetan monks. The Tibet Sun reported on Dec. 13, 2013, a Chinese official says to build an “impenetrable defense”, China should befriend Tibet monks.

The senior Chinese official was making reference to building an “impenetrable defense” against separatism in Tibet. He feels befriending Tibetan nuns along with Tibetan monks is important. Nevertheless, tension in China’s Tibetan regions has been at its highest levels in years in the aftermath of a series of self- immolation protests by Tibetans, which have led to a more rigid security crackdown.

The ruling Communist Party chief in Tibet, Chen Quanguo, said in the official People’s Daily newspaper, that China must grasp the heart of the people. In order to win the hearts of Tibetan monks and nuns, Chen thinks Chinese officials must make certain all monasteries have electricity and running water, display Chinese national flags and images of government leaders, and gain access to Chinese state television, newspapers and libraries.

However, Chen also stresses stamping out separatist voices in Tibet. And Beijing has been referring to the Dalai Lama as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” who advocates the use of violent methods to establish an independent Tibet. Therefore, it does not appear that there will be a mutually acceptable resolution to the problems between the Tibetans and Chinese authorities anytime soon.
