Dolma further elaborated on the history of official dialogue between Tibet and China, noting that “we had the opportunity to submit the memorandum on general autonomy of Tibetan people with the subsequent submission of clarifying note to the Chinese counterpart-explaining and explicating our understanding position on the framework and concept of middle way policy.”
