Urging world leaders to take serious note of "repression" of Tibetans by China, Lobsang Sangay, prime minister of Tibetan government-in-exile, today said Beijing has ignored his offers for a compromise.
"We are ready for a compromise, but Beijing is not ready for it. Chinese administration is continuing its strong policies of repression against Tibetans," he told reporters here.
He said Tibetans were pursuing a middle way approach to China and demanding genuine autonomy within China.
"The Chinese government is not ready to concede this. I do not think there can be a more reasonable demand than this," said Sangay, who has been in office for the past 15 months.
He contended that the demand for genuine autonomy was within the framework of Chinese Constitution.
Asked whether he supported the self-immolation by Tibetan monks in China, he as "we have appealed to them not to resort to such acts or take any such steps that would harm us. But, as a Tibetan we express our solidarity with them and are supportive of their objectives."
On his expectations from the new Chinese leadership, he said, "It would be too early to comment. We don't think there would be any change in their policies."
Sangay claimed that there were more Chinese troops in Tibet than Buddhist monks and more close circuit television cameras than house windows.
"Tibetans are living under an undeclared martial law," he claimed.
