The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) on Wednesday released a film titled ‘Umay Lam: Middle Way-The Way Forward’ to resolve Tibet issue.
A CTA official said Umay Lam in Tibetan means the Middle Way Approach and the policy is proposed by Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama to peacefully resolve the issue of Tibet.
The policy also aims to bring about stability and co-existence between the Tibetan and Chinese people based on equality and mutual co-operation.
It is also a policy adopted democratically by the CTA and the Tibetan people through a series of discussions held over a long time, he added.
Produced by Tibet TV and directed by Tibetan filmmaker Tenzin Kalden, the film showcases the relevance of the Middle Way Approach as the Tibetan freedom struggle enters its 60th-year threshold.
The film shows the first generation of Tibetans who lived through the invasion, are now slowly phasing out and the new generation of Tibetans have taken over the mantle of the freedom struggle.
The 18-minute film features leading Tibetan political personalities engaged in Sino-Tibet negotiations share their experience and provide commentary on the Middle Way Approach.
The film also highlights how in their own homeland, Tibetans continue to resist the repressive Chinese policies threatening their religion, culture and identity.
The film illustrates how Umay Lam (Middle Way Policy) which proposes a mutually beneficial solution for Tibet and China wherein Tibetans seek ‘Genuine Autonomy’ within the framework of the People’s Republic of China.
And in return China maintains, it’s territorial integrity, is the way forward and the most viable solution to resolving the longstanding Sino-Tibet issue.
