Dharamsala, Nov 22 (UNI) The six-day special meeting of Tibetan leaders, called to deliberate on the future course of action on Tibet, concluded here today, reaffirming faith in the leadership of Tibetan spritual leader and temporal head, the Dalai Lama.

This was disclosed by Mr Karma Chophel, Speaker of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile, at a press conference here this evening.

The meeting decided to continue Tibetans' struggle with the basic policy of the "middle way" approach as advoated by the Dalai Lama, he said.

The majority of Tibetans, who attended the meeting, supported the Dalai Lama's policy of 'middle way' approach to resolve the Tibet issue, he added.

He said the meeting resolved that in future the Tibetan community would not seek a permission for the recognition of their religious leaders and gurus from the Chinese Government.

The Young Tibetans, however, said that if the "middle way approach" of Dalai Lama did not have the desired result the Tibetans would not hesitate to resort to a direct action for the independence of Tibet .

As many as 580 grass root level Tibetan leaders from 19 countries attended the meeting.

Prof Samdong Rinpoche, Prime Minister Tibetan Government in-exile, expressed satisfaction over the successful culmination of the meeting.

"In my view it is great success and everybody spoke their mind freely and fully expressed their views", he told UNI here.

He said the delegates showed solidarity for the cause of Tibet and unitedly expressed faith in Dalai Lama's leadership.

Prof Rinpoche said this meeting was a clear signal to the Chinese Government that Tibetan people were absolutely united.
