Democratic nations must look at pro-democratic 'internal forces' in China: Tibetan leader

New Delhi, Dec 6 (PTI) Tibetan people are "dying a slow death" in the face of China's repression and the democratic nations must stand up to the Chinese belligerence, president of Tibet's government-in-exile Penpa Tsering has said.

Tsering said the "democratic free world" must look at the "internal forces" such as the Tibetans, Uyghur leaders and pro-democratic activists in Hong Kong to put pressure on Beijing to reverse its aggressive approach and bring "positive changes" within that country.

The Tibetan leader also underlined the importance for India to speak out clearly on issues like choosing the successor to the Dalai Lama and China's overall muscle-flexing in the region.
