In 1959, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama fled into exile, following a failed uprising against Chinese rule.
The CTA and Tibetan advocacy groups have received a boost in international support amid rising criticism of China's human rights record, particularly from the United States.
Tsering reiterated that when the 14th Dalai Lama passes he will only be reincarnated in a "free country", according to his wishes.
"Why are they so concerned with the 15th Dalai Lama?"
"The 14th Dalai Lama is still living and he wishes to go to China ... the Chinese government leaders need to learn about Buddhism first."
