Dharamsala, Mar 12 (ANI): A 23-member delegation of the Chinese Democratic Movement (CDM) has arrived here to support a Tibetan exiles' demand of autonomy from China.

Addressing the media, Chin Jin, the head of the delegation, appealed to the world leaders to help restore democracy in China.

"I want the world leaders should have a kind of obligation to help Chinese and Tibetan people to achieve what they want. Chinese people want democracy and Tibetan people want a meaningful autonomy. I think the democracy in China and autonomy for Tibet is two sides of one coin. We should work together," said Chin.

CDM is a loosely organized political movement in China against continued one-party rule by the Communist Party of China. The movement began during Beijing Spring in 1978 and played an important role in the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.

The members of the CDM delegation are from six countries i.e. USA, Australia, Germany, Cambodia, Thailand and Japan, besides Taiwan and Hong Kong. (ANI)
