China: Announces Plans for Future Talks with Dalai Lama

BEIJING – The Chinese news agency Xinhua announced that Chinese authorities plan to arrange for new talks with the Dalai Lama, the BBC reported on October 29. The Xinhua quoted an unnamed government official as saying the exiled spiritual leader of Tibet should “treasure this opportunity” and respond positively. The Dalai Lama announced on the weekend of October 24-25 that he had lost hope that dialogue with China would produce any further results. The Xinhua report also said such talks would be held “despite the Lhasa riot in March and some serious disruptions and sabotages to the Beijing Olympic Games by a handful of ‘Tibet independence’ secessionists.”
