Tibetan status

Dear Editors:

I am fascinated with recent postings on Phayul.com regarding TYC.  With respect to the aspirations for a unified Tibet comprising of all ethnic Tibetans in all of the three cholkhasum, I am convinced that this is not a new idea since exile.  It was a strong argument presented by Lonchen Shatra who led the Tibetan delegation as the Plenipotentiary to the 1913 Simla Convention.  Below is an excerpt of his argument for demarcations of geopolitical borders of a free Tibet.  

The British were deeply impressed with the abundance of supporting documents which consisted of over 50 containers the Tibetan delegation transported for the Convention.  I look forward to more just and educated views on the present status of Tibet without causing further divisions.
