Prime Minister of Tibetan Government in Exile Dr Lobsang Sangay congratulated Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on his re-election as head of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party of Japan.

Shinzo Abe won the Thursday election, with a landslide vote of 553 out of a total of 807, setting him on course to become the longest-serving prime minister in the country’s history. The 63-year-old Abe has been prime minister since December 2012.

“I, on behalf of the Central Tibetan Administration, heartily congratulate you on being re-elected as the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, paving the way for your excellency becoming the longest-serving prime minister of Japan,” President Dr Lobsang Sangay said.

“Your re-election to the crucial post of the party leader is a reflection of your leadership and integrity in shaping positive developments in Asia and the world.

He added, “I express my deepest appreciation to your excellency for your kind support in hosting my five-day visit to Japan in April 2014.

“I am very appreciative of your support for Middle Way Approach proposed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, which I continue to believe is the best way for us to ensure a solution that is beneficial for both Tibetans and Chinese.

“I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to the government and people of Japan for their unwavering generosity and support for the Tibetan people,” he concluded.
