To address the Chinese government‟s concerns about and objections to the Memorandum, the Tibetan leadership presents a Note on the Memorandum on Genuine Autonomy for the Tibetan People during the 9th round of talks. The Memorandum and the Note describe how a genuine autonomy for the Tibetan people would operate within the framework of the People‟s Republic of China: its constitution, territorial integrity and sovereignty, its „three adherences‟1 and the hierarchy and authority of the Chinese Central Government (CCG). The Note further addresses specific concerns raised by the Chinese government with respect to the form of single administration; political, social and economic systems; public security; regulation of population migration; language; and religion. The Chinese government once again refuses to accept the proposal.
