Seventeen Point Agreement

9 Facts concerning the 17-point agreement between Tibet and China, p.-137, DIIR, 2001 After the occupation, on 23 May 1951, of the capital of the province of the People`s Republic of China, Mr. Chamdo, the People`s Republic of China (PRC), the 17-point agreement on the measures of peaceful liberation of Tibet was forced. The alternative, according to the occupying forces, is an immediate military operation in the rest of Tibet. Photo after Claude Arpi`s exhibition. China has strongly implemented the firmness of the other 13 points. But these four points that China has promised Tibet are still not respected, but China has violated it. The agreement was signed by Ngapoi Ngawang Jigme, who voted in favour of Tibet`s approval of China, and was sealed on 23 May 1951 in Beijing and was confirmed a few months later by the Tibetan government. [12] In addition, the Dalai Lama has been publicly announced that he will ratify the agreement, and its adoption was sent to Beijing by telegram on October 24 [4]: May 23, 2019 will mark the 68th anniversary of the controversial 17-point agreement between Tibet and China. China should once again make a bleak statement to tout Tibet`s union with the metropolis. Let us examine some facts about the agreement and ask China to further examine the agreement in order to resolve the Tibet issue instead of celebrating it as a victory. Chinese sources see the document as a legal treaty that has been mutually praised by governments and the Tibetan people. Founded after 1960, headquarters and international law expert Eckart Klein believe they are invalidated and signed under duress. [1] [2] Ngapoi Ngawang Jigme, head of the Tibetan delegation to the peace talks in Beijing, however, indicated that there was no forced labour.

[3] A. Tom Grunfeld pointed out that the obvious admiration in the poem of the 14th Dalai Lama shows few people dissatisfied with the Chinese presence in Tibet. [4] In the face of the cycle of protest and rebellion and state repression that has marked Sino-Tibetan relations in recent years, it is easy to forget that the governments of the People`s Republic of China (PRC) and the Dalai Lama coexisted in central Tibet in most of the 1950s. The framework of the special state status that allowed this to be done was formally described as an agreement between the central government and the government of Tibet on measures to be taken to peacefully liberate Tibet, but it was described as a seventeen-point agreement (hereafter referred to as the agreement). As an agreement reached in 1951 between the Tibetan Central and the People`s Republic of China, the agreement confirmed the takeover of Tibet by the People`s Republic of China, but generally gave a degree of autonomy that was not available to local authorities in other parts of China. The agreement allowed the continuation of the Tibetan central government based on religion under the Dalai Lama, Tibetan Buddhist institutions and practices and the Tibetan socio-economic system. The authorities of the People`s Republic of China have also expressed their readiness to delay socialist reforms until Tibetan elites voluntarily approve them. This was the only time that the new regime voted on the terms of its takeover of a territory by a written agreement. The seventh point: “The religious beliefs, customs and customs of the Tibetan people must be respected and the Lama monasteries protected.” The eleventh point: “The Tibetan local government should undertake reforms on its part and the demands for reforms made by the people must be resolved through consultations with Tibetan leaders.” The Chinese have certainly made new labels for Tibetans, but they are only personal seals on which the name of each delegate was engraved. Otherwise, there was no forged government seal.
