There are many facets of human rights and those fundamental and basic ones are well protected in Tibet, a senior Nepali journalist who visited Tibet last year told Xinhua in a recent interview.

"If you want to know about my first impression, I was highly impressed with China's economic development. My visit to Lhasa was an eye opener of the fact that so much has been accomplished," said Ambar Mainali, Chief Reporter of The Rising Nepal.

The development, which is crucial to human rights, is well safeguarded in Tibet, he said.

Mainali paid a half-month visit to Tibet and the provinces of Qinghai and Sichuan in the western part of China last September, where he visited different cultural sites and "saw that many monasteries were being renovated."

"There cannot be absolutely good human rights situation anywhere in the world. As for basic and fundamental rights of free movement, doing business and having access to education, all of them seem to be well protected in Tibet," he said.

"I feel that one country has its own policies and one should stick to it while at the same time respect the international human rights treaties that they have signed," Mainali said, referring to the recent Lhasa riots.

"It is obvious that Nepal has been sticking to the one-China policy," he said.

Talking about the recent anti-China activities by some Tibetan separatists in Kathmandu, Mainali noted that the Nepali government will not ignore the activities, which they believe, are not intended for peaceful purposes.
