People's Review - - COMMENTARY -

ULAN BATOR, Sept. 17 (Xin­hua) -- A vis­it­ing Ti­betan cul­tural ex­change del­e­ga­tion dis­patched by China's State Coun­cil In­for­ma­tion Of­fice has re­ported on the lat­est eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment of China's Ti­bet Au­tonomous Re­gion and China's poli­cies to pro­tect tra­di­tional Ti­betan cul­ture. It has in­formed Mon­go­lian of­fi­cials, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Ti­betan Bud­dhist com­mu­nity and the press on the lat­est eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment of China's Ti­bet Au­tonomous Re­gion and China's poli­cies to pro­tect tra­di­tional Ti­betan cul­ture. "With vast ter­ri­tory, China is a united multi-eth­nic state. Ti­betan cul­ture with unique plateau char­ac­ter­is­tics is an in­sep­a­ra­ble and im­por­tant part of Chi­nese cul­ture," said Hao Shiyuan, head of the del­e­ga­tion and mem­ber of the Chi­nese Academy of So­cial Sciences, at the dis­cus­sion with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from var­i­ous fields of Mon­go­lia at the Chi­nese Em­bassy here on Mon­day. In the process of eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment, it is an im­por­tant task for China to pro­tect Ti­betan cul­ture and the cul­tures of other eth­nic mi­nori­ties, Hao said. China and Mon­go­lia have en­joyed a long his­tory of re­li­gious and cul­tural ex­changes. The co­op­er­a­tion and ex­changes be­tween the two sides have great po­ten­tial, he added. Yang Qing­dong, charge d'af­faires ad in­terim of the Chi­nese em­bassy, said in his speech that China-Mon­go­lia re­la­tions have en­tered the fast track this year. "The visit of the Chi­nese Ti­betan cul­tural ex­change del­e­ga­tion to Mon­go­lia is a con­crete mea­sure for China to im­ple­ment the con­sen­sus of the lead­ers of the two coun­tries and to pro­mote peo­ple-to-peo­ple ex­changes be­tween the two sides," he said. He ex­pressed the hope that such ex­changes will help Mon­go­lian academia, me­dia and or­di­nary peo­ple bet­ter un­der­stand China and en­hance the friend­ship be­tween the two peo­ples. Mon­go­lia is the sec­ond stop of the del­e­ga­tion's overseas ex­change trip. The del­e­ga­tion has al­ready vis­ited Ja­pan, and will leave Mon­go­lia on Tues­day for South Korea.
