Official says Mongolia supports continued Chinese presence in Tibet PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 28 June 2007
Following calls for Tibetan independence at a Socialist youth conference held in Ulaanbaatur in June, Mongolians officials have reiterated their policy of supporting China’s continued presence in Tibet. 

Speaking on Tuesday, Danzan Lundeejantsan, chairman of the State Great Hural of Mongolia, said Tibet is an inalienable part of China and Mongolia would continue to recognize Chinese authority over Tibet. 

Danzan Lundeejantsan made these comments while meeting with Tsering Dolkar, Vice Chairman of Tibet's People's Political Consultative Conference of China in Ulaanbaatur. 

The Socialist youth conference in June had received international attention when it overwhelmingly supported independence for Tibet. A number of Mongolian officials and parliament members also spoke in favor of Tibetan independence during the youth conference.

Gorn, I find the Mongolian government's statement more disturbing. International organizations and state governments continue to recognize Chinese sovereignty at the expense of the Tibetans, the Taiwanese, etc.  
Tibet, like Mongolia, was conquered by the Manchurians in the mid-to-late-17th century. Before then, neither was a part of Chinese territory. The Qing Manchu dynasty split Mongolia into Inner and Outer regions; when the empire fell, Outer Mongolia declared its independence from China. If Tibet is unquestionably a part of Chinese territory, so is the state of Mongolia.
