New Delhi, Mar 29 (UNI) The Dalai Lama today sought more support from the international community in resolving the Tibet problem.

''Many governments and people are showing genuine interest and expressed concern on Tibet issue. I appreciate them on behalf of the Tibetans, both in and outside Tibet. I do not consider people who speak positive on Tibet as pro-Tibet...I consider them pro-justice,'' he told a news conference here.

The Tibetan spiritual leader said the international community should do more till something ''concrete'' on Tibet came out.

He said the countries such as US, Europe, Japan and India could help in reaching to a solution mutually agreeable to both the Chinese and the Tibetans.

Asked if he wanted the international community to exert more pressure on China to resolve the Tibet problem, the Dalai Lama said he would first see if there was any change in the attitude of the Chinese government in the near future.

''We will have to judge the situation during the next few weeks,'' he added.

The Dalai Lama also welcomed the tour of foreign diplomats and media to Tibet being conducted by the Chinese authorities.

''It is a positive step. Some neutral and respected people should also visit Lhasa and other areas in Tibet. China must allow them to visit the region,'' he added.

The leader of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile said there should be some kind of guarantee to the Tibetans that they do not face any danger in future.
