Tibet to reopen to foreign tourists soon
 
 

LHASA, June 20, 2008 -- Tibet will reopen to foreign tourists soon, Palma Trily, executive vice chairman of Tibet, told a press conference here on Friday.

The official, however, said the move would not occur immediately after Saturday's Olympic torch relay. He did not give specific date.

A 50-strong delegation of journalists left Beijing for Lhasa on Friday to report the Olympic torch relay. The group included staff from 29 overseas news organizations, including BBC, Reuters, AP and AFP.

The Information Office of the State Council said China cordially welcomed journalists from around the world to cover the Beijing Olympic Games and the torch relay activities.

The Beijing Organizing Committee of the Games of the 29th Olympiad (BOCOG) announced the torch relay schedule in Tibet was cut to one day on June 21 from the original three days of June 19 to 21.
