SANTIAGO, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- A delegation of Chinese academicians briefed Chilean legislators on current situation in China's Autonomous Region of Tibet in a seminar at Chile's congress on Wednesday, and won praise from the audience.
"It was a very enlightening event where we had the chance to learn all the developments experienced by this region of China," said Hernan Larrain, chairman of the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee.
"For us it was particularly useful to increase our knowledge about the region and its current situation," said Robert Leon, a congress deputy from the opposition Christian Democratic Party.
During the meeting, the Chinese scholars answered questions about the history, social progress and economic development of Tibet.
The visit by the Chinese delegation, mostly composed of Chinese specialists in Tibetan studies, was aimed at promoting mutual understanding between the two peoples and presenting a true picture of Tibet.
Before meeting with Chilean legislators, the Chinese specialists held seminars at the Presidential Palace, the Foreign Ministry and universities in Chile.
