Dalai Lama Legacy Forever, You’ll Be Gone: Pelosi To Xi

DHARAMSHALA (ANI) – Former US House Speaker Nancy Peolsi who is part of a US bipartisan delegation, which met with the Dalai Lama on June 19 launched a broadside against Xi Jinping, stating that while the legacy of the Tibetan spiritual leader will live forever, the Chinese President will be gone in a few years.

Pelosi who is on a two-day visit to India said, “No one will give credit” Xi for anything.

“His Holiness Dalai Lama, with his message of knowledge, tradition, compassion, purity of soul, and love, will live a long time and his legacy will live forever. But you, the President of China, you’ll be gone, and nobody will give you credit for anything,” said the former US House Speaker.

Pelosi said that the Dalai Lama would not approve of her comment against the Chinese. “When I criticize the Chinese government, he says, let’s pray for Nancy to rid her of her negative attitudes,” Pelosi said during the public felicitation program at Tsuglagkhang Complex here.

The bipartisan Congressional delegation arrived in India on Tuesday and was received by officials of the Central Tibetan Administration at Himachal Pradesh’s Kangra Airport the same day.

Last week, the US Congress passed a bill urging Beijing to re-engage with the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan leaders to peacefully resolve their dispute over the status and governance of Tibet.

The US House of Representatives passed the bill ‘Promoting a Resolution to the Tibet-China Dispute Act’, also known as the ‘Resolve Tibet Act’, and it now heads to President Joe Biden for a signature to become law, Radio Free Asia reported.

“You heard our colleagues talk about this legislation that was passed last week. We had been fighting this for a long time and in the spirituality of His Holiness, with maneuvering inside the Congress, we made progress. But it’s different now with the passage of this bill (Resolve Tibet Act) because this bill is a message to the Chinese Government that we have clarity in our thinking and our understanding of this issue of the freedom of Tibet,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi further recalled the visit of the Chinese President to Washington, DC where she told him that the US is “objecting” to what China is doing to the culture of Tibet.

Representative Congressman Gregory Meeks who is heading the American delegation’s visit to India too gave a strong response to Beijing’s criticism of their visit. “China can express unhappiness if it wants. We are going to stand for what is right. What is right is to make sure that Tibetans have freedom. They can return to their native land, and they are able to keep their culture & history…That’s what is important…” he said.

The US legislation, notably rejects Beijing’s stance that Tibet has been part of China since ancient times. It also urged China to begin talks with the Dalai Lama.
