"Mr President, in my view the European Union should have three objectives regarding Tibet and China. The first is the immediate objective to end the violence, murders and especially torture happening in Tibet. Torture is at present a much bigger problem than murders because for 50 years it has furthered the oppression in Tibet. The second more mid-term objective is of course linked to the Olympic Games. We still have five months to make sure that China fulfils its commitments. Five months is a lot of time and it is now a very good time to make sure that the Olympic Games’ political goals – which were the reason why China got the Olympic Games – are really fulfilled. Finally, the most important thing is that the high-level talks between the Dalai Lama’s representatives and the Chinese Government really can continue. Since the talks began there has been very little progress. I think that the European Union could give more support to the Dalai Lama to reach, in these peaceful talks, a really sustainable future for an autonomous Tibet."@en1
