At that time, the Mayor of Evry was Manuel Valls. He was very outspoken when he addressed the crowd in presence of the Dalai Lama. He said, “I support the Tibetan cause, which is denied in its roots… Here, it is all France which welcomes the Dalai Lama, not only Evry.” Manuel Valls has just been appointed as the new French Prime Minister, succeeding to Jean Marc Ayrault after the severe defeat of the Socialist party at Municipal/local elections in France. Before that, Manuel Valls was the Minister of Interior and is the most popular Minister of the French Government. Let’s hope that in his new capacity he will not forget what he said when he was Mayor of Evry. The next visit of the Dalai Lama in France will certainly be a good test.

What did France give away on Tibet?

On Thursday, April 9, 2009, in Archives, by Todd Stein
On the eve of the G-20 summit (April 1), the governments of France and China issued a joint  “press communiqué” in which France stated its adherence to a one-China policy and its position that Tibet is a part of China. Many saw this as French capitulation to the emergent China bully, with President Sarkozy, tail between legs and communiqué in hand, paying a premium for re-acquisition of “normal relations” with Beijing following his (mon Dieu!) meeting with the Dalai Lama last December.  They question what, if anything, Sarkozy got in return. On the face of it, the communiqué did not break new ground.  It simply restated France’s position on the status of Tibet that goes back 40-50 years. But read a little further and the picture gets more complicated, and potentially more ominous.  The communiqué says, “France refuses to support any form of ‘Tibet independence.’”  We know what this means to China, as they have labeled the Dalai Lama’s efforts to create genuine autonomy for Tibetans within the People’s Republic of China as “semi-independence” or “disguised independence.” Apropos, the Foreign Ministry quickly conflated French rejection of “any form of Tibetan independence” with their campaign to stop “the Dalai Lama engaging in activities overseas aimed at splitting the motherland.” You can bet Chinese Ambassadors around the world are already inside foreign ministries making the case against any more visas for the Dalai Lama (see the latest from South Africa) by citing France’s agreement to reject the form of independence advocated by the Tibetan leader. But what does this language mean to Paris?  We don’t know; the government has declined to offer its interpretation.  With this silence, the Chinese view prevails.  And as long as it goes unchecked by the French government, it weakens not only the French position on Tibet (supporting a negotiated solution) but also the Dalai Lama’s efforts to maintain international support for a solution based on genuine autonomy.
