“We would like to express our heartfelt congratulations on your elevation to the post of Speaker of the Australian Parliament’s House of Representatives,” the Kashag said in its congratulatory message.

“The Central Tibetan Administration appreciate the fact that you co-hosted a visit by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to the Australian Parliament in June 2011. The Central Tibetan Administration fondly remembers your visit to the Dharamshala as part of the first Australian All-Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet to visit Dharamshala in July 2009”, the Kashag said.

“Tibet today is under martial law all but in name as been evidenced by the 11 Tibetans who self-immolated in the recent months. In this regard, we appeal to you to use your unique position for the speedy resolution of the issue of Tibet” the Kashag said.
