"One country, two systems" not possible for Tibet: article(07/28/06)
2005/07/28

 

    An article, recently published on the website of China Tibet Information Center, condemns Dalai Lama's attempts to refute the current political system in Tibet, insisting that "one country, two systems" is not possible for Tibet.

    The signed article, written by Yedor, has analyzed the "middle way", advocated by Dalai Lama in recent years, pointing out that any endeavor to destroy and change the current political system in Tibet runs counter to the Constitution and law of China.

    Dalai Lama has said Tibet should achieve "high-level autonomy" or "real autonomy" according to the "one country, two systems" principle, and the scope of "autonomy" should be larger than that for Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao.

    Meanwhile, he argues that "a Tibetan government should be set up in Lhasa and should have an elected administrative chief and possess a bicameral legislative organ and an independent judicial system".

    In November 2005, the Dalai Lama said in the United States: "The Central Government should take care of defense and foreign affairs, because the Tibetans have no experience in this regard, but the Tibetans should have full responsibility for education, economic development, environmental protection and religion".

    This is obviously different from what he claims for Tibet to work "within the framework of the Chinese Constitution" in his advocacy for the "middle way", says the article.

    The white paper entitled National Regional Autonomy in Tibet issued by Chinese government in 2004 made it clear that, unlike Hong Kong and Macao, Tibet is not faced with question related to the exercise of sovereignty and the possibility of re-introducing another social system. Any endeavor to destroy and change the current political system in Tibet runs counter to the Constitution and law of China.

    It is known to all that the "one country, two systems" refers to the fact that the mainland follows the socialist system while Hong Kong and Macao continue to follow the capitalist system they had followed before, the article says.

    However, no capitalist system existed in Tibetan history; what was followed in the region was a feudal serfdom featuring temporal religious administration, says the article.

    In its own "constitution of Tibet in exile", Dalai Lama advocates the reintroduction of the old system featuring "temporal religious administration". According to the system, Dalai Lama is the government and religious leader enjoying the final say on major matters, says the article.

    When Dalai Lama fled overseas, his government in exile continued to follow the old system, with the role of chief Galoon, or "premier", of the government in exile continuing to be assumed by a high-ranking lama.

    "These are the people who are advocating the 'one country, two systems' approach for Tibet. What they can do? Only restore the feudal serfdom, and nothing else," the article adds. Enditem

    BEIJING, July 28 (Xinhua) -- An article, recently published on the website of China Tibet Information Center, says Dalai Lama still refuses to recognize the fact that Tibet is part of China.

    The signed article, written by Yedor, has analyzed the "middle way", advocated by Dalai Lama in recent years, pointing out that the so-called "middle way" actually goes against China's Constitution and law.

    China's Constitution stipulates in its preface that the People's Republic of China (PRC) is a multi-national country founded by peoples of various ethnic groups in the country. Article 4 of the Constitution goes further to say that various regions exercising national regional autonomy in China are an inalienable part of the country. Full story>>

    ¡¡ Article urges Dalai to truly give up "Tibetan independence" policy

    BEIJING, July 28 (Xinhua) -- An article, recently published on the website of China Tibet Information Center, urges Dalai Lama to truly give up the policy of "Tibetan independence."

    The signed article, written by Yedor, analyzed the "middle way", advocated by Dalai Lama in recent years, pointing out that the so-called "middle way" actually falls short of the reality.
