The Kashag is aware of the incident of three Tibetans carrying the Chinese national flag during their ongoing peace march to Tibet. Moreover, the Kashag discussed the matter on 11 May 2012.

The Kashag on numerous occasions made clear its long-standing guidelines that every political activities carried out by the Tibetans should be peaceful, in accordance with the laws of the host country, and dignified.

The act of carrying Chinese flag by the three Tibetans during the course of their peace March is supported by some and also opposed by others. Concerning this matter, based on our aforementioned three principles, the Kashag does not endorse either the burning of nor those carrying the Chinese flag. This is the position of the Kashag.
