More than 100 foreign diplomats visited an exhibition in Beijing on Tuesday marking the 60th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet.

The exhibition, with 500 photos, more than 30 relics, 30 tables and graphs and video clips, focused on remarkable achievements in the economic, political, cultural and social realms in Tibet during the past six decades led by the Communist Party of China (CPC).

May Shihab Ahmed, third secretary with the Embassy of Iraq, believed that the Chinese government played important roles on Tibetan development.

"The Chinese government plays a role on elections, health care, teaching and so on," she said.

Munshi Faiz Ahmad, ambassador with the Embassy of Bangladesh, who visited Tibet with his wife two years ago, said he learned more about Tibet after visiting the exhibition.

"Tibet has undergone sweeping changes. Tibet is making progress every day and people in Tibet feel happy for their freedom. I hope Tibet will achieve much more and quicker development, and, we can learn from it," Ahmad said.

Pietro Sferra Carini, head of the Political Chancery with the Embassy of Italy, thought the phenomenon that Hans live with Tibetans reflect maturation of culture.

"I think it's mature of culture or country that all groups can live everywhere, and important thing is to respect cultural values of people living in the region," Pietro said.

Meanwhile, Pietro expected a more open Tibet to attract more foreign visitors.

"Speaking frankly, I mean we (people in Western countries) believe Tibet is a very sensitive area, but if more people visit, maybe they could start feeling it's a normal region. It's good to open up Tibet," Pietro explained.

The exhibition, being held from June 15 to July 8, is organized by the United Front Work Department of the CPC Central Committee, Information Office of the State Council, National Development and Reform Commission, State Ethnic Affairs Commission, the government of the Tibet Autonomous Region and Xinhua News Agency.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. It will be held once again in mid-July in Lhasa, the capital city of the Tibet Autonomous Region.
