The freedom of religious belief of the Tibetans has been fully guaranteed with support from China's central government, a visiting Chinese expert on Tibet said Monday.

Zhang Yun, an expert with the China Tibetology Research Center and head of a Chinese delegation, made the remarks while meeting Katerina Konecna, vice chairwoman of the foreign affairs committee of the Czech House of Parliament.

Tibet has made substantial economic, social and cultural progress over past decades while Tibetans' livelihood has also been greatly improved, said Zhang.

Most Tibetans hope that the autonomous region could develop better and faster under the leadership of the central government of China, he added.

Zhang also briefed Konecna on Tibet's history, saying that the Dalai Lama's proposal to set up a "Greater Tibet region" in the disguise of "high-degree autonomy" will not be accepted by the Chinese government and the Tibetan people.

He added that members of the delegation would like to tell the Czech Parliament, the press and the public about the true story of Tibet.

Konecna, who had visited Tibet once, said she was deeply impressed by Tibet's natural beauty and the achievements in its development.
