Increasing pressure on China over Tibet

Published: Tuesday 25 March 2008 17:38 UTC

Paris - There is increasing international pressure on China to resolve the Tibet issue peacefully. On Tuesday, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said he was considering a boycott of the Olympic Games' opening ceremony. He said he was appealing to the Chinese authorities' sense of responsibility regarding the unrest in Tibet.

The Germany government today again called on China to enter into dialogue with the Dalai Lama, but Berlin said that a boycott would be counterproductive. US President George W Bush said he would attend the Beijing Olympics' opening ceremony as planned.

The Tibetan government in exile says that 140 people have been killed during the protests of the past few weeks, whereas the Chinese government says 20 people lost their lives.
