Zhang Yun (L), head of the China's Tibetan cultural delegation and also director of the Institute of History Studies of the China Tibetology Research Center talks to the researchers and students at the Oxford University in Britain on Oct. 20, 2016.

A Chinese delegation on Saturday wrapped up its three-day trip to Britain where they visited universities and a media house to boost exchanges on Tibetan culture.

The delegation visited universities of Oxford, Westminster and Cambridge where they talked with researchers and students on issues ranging from Tibet's opening up and religious freedom, to the ancient culture in the area and the translation of the Tibetan Buddhism scriptures.

They also visited the headquarters of the Daily Telegraph and talked with senior editors on foreign affairs.

Zhang Yun, head of the delegation and also director of the Institute of History Studies of the China Tibetology Research Center, said he hopes to present the real Tibet to the Western world by breaking the myth and clearing up misunderstandings through the visit.

Dibyesh Anand, head of the department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Westminster, said the visit of the delegation provides a different perspective for his students to observe Tibet.

He said that Tibet has made huge achievements in its economic development over the past decades but also has challenges in governance.

Britain is the second leg of the delegation's three-nation visit. They will start visiting Ireland on Sunday.
