US envoy Gary Locke urges China to review Tibet policy

"We implore the Chinese to really meet with the representatives of the Tibetan people to address and re-examine some of the policies that have led to some of the restrictions and the violence and the self-immolation. We have very serious concerns about the violence, of the self-immolations, that have occurred over the last several years. Nobody wants that type of action, or of people having to resort to that type of action. Too many deaths. We have grave concerns about self-immolation in Tibet and about the underlying grievances that the Tibetan people have. And we have consistently urged dialogue between the Chinese government and the Tibetan people with regard to those grievances"

excerpt of American ambassador to Beijing, Locke on Monday at China Town Hall.
These words of concern from his side comes not immediately after his visit to Ngaba region of Tibet but after a highly disastrous week of chauvinist Tibetans burning continuously in Tibet after several weeks of his visit to Tibet. Though such solidarity words and supports keep coming towards the grave Tibetan cause, about 62 Tibetans have already set themselves to fire without any tangible result against the crisis in Tibet!
