China insists it will win hearts of West over Tibet

The situation in Tibet remains tense with Tibetans saying repression under Chinese rule is intolerable and with China responding with statements China has been investing heavily in improving the lives of the Tibetans. China claims it will win the support of the West over to its view on Tibet, reported the Tibet Sun on Feb. 21, 2014.

A senior Chinese official has written that China has “time on its side” to win over Western opinion to its point of view in dealing with Tibet. Zhu Weiqun, who is chairman of the ethnic and religious affairs committee of the top advisory body to the Chinese parliament, has acknowledged this would be a very hard task but said dissenting voices are now beginning to be heard in the West. Weiqun has vowed with unusually strong language to ignore foreign pressure dealing with human rights. Zhu says the West would finally “see the real face of the Dalai clique” referring to exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

Nevertheless, in Tibetan regions of China, greater than 120 Tibetans have set themselves on fire since 2009 in protest over Chinese rule. A serious problem which has emerged is worldwide recognition of the United States as standing alongside China as also being a leading human rights abuser nation which has been violating the privacy rights of citizens and working with the police and psychiatrists to crack down on the personal freedoms of citizens.

It's no wonder in between the rhetoric dealing with human rights issues between Beijing and Washington, DC, their diplomats nevertheless enjoy absolutely magnificent and extravagant state dinners together, with Peking Duck, fine French wines, champagne and caviar, whenever they have a chance. Where this actually leaves Lhasa and the Tibetans is out in the cold in dealing with the real power politics between China and the United States.
