"Mr President, the way the Chinese authorities are addressing the crisis in Tibet is proof that Beijing is unwilling to change its ruthless policies towards minorities. It is cowardly and dishonest to claim the Dalai Lama is inspiring the riots. I am proud of you, Mr President, for courageously taking a clear moral stand on the Tibetan issue and today declaring our unconditional solidarity with the Tibetan people. Speaking about the Olympic Games, I think it is opportune to recall that seven years ago, in July 2001, this Parliament concluded that China ‘clearly fails to uphold universal human, civil and political rights’ and ‘that this negative record and the repression in Tibet ... make it inappropriate’ for China to become the host of the 2008 Olympic Games. Sadly, real life has proved the correctness of this conclusion. I call upon the Commission and Council to demonstrate the same measure of solidarity with Tibet as has been demonstrated today in this Chamber."@en1
