The Tibetan parliament-in-exile on Tuesday appealed to the United Nations to reaffirm its commitment and conviction on the resolutions adopted by its general assembly on and restart the Sino-dialogue.

In a letter addressed to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, it said: "The situation inside continues to remain grim and alarming despite China's lofty claims of having liberated and developed for the past 66 years."

"Since 2009, over 145 Tibetans in have resorted to self-immolation in protest against China's rule in ..

Therefore, we are optimistic on the resumption of Sino-dialogue and the resolution of the issue during your term," the letter added.

The UN General Assembly has passed three resolutions on and the last one was on December 18, 1965.

The Dalai Lama fled after a failed uprising against Chinese Communist rule in 1959.

The government-in-exile is based in Dharamsala but has not won recognition from any country.
