Dalai Lama Envoys Arrive in China for Talks

From Reuters:

Senior envoys of the Dalai Lama arrive in China on Monday to meet the government over the issue of Tibet, the Tibetan government-in-exile said.

The talks, scheduled from July 1-2 in Beijing, aim to mend fences with the Dalai Lama who fled into exile in 1959 after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule in Tibet.

This is the second meeting between the two sides since a crackdown on protests against Chinese rule in Tibet earlier this year, which led to an international diplomatic chorus for China to hold a dialogue with the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader.
