From the Washington Post:
China Daily, the official English-language newspaper, published an interview with Lahlu Tsewang Dorje, a Tibetan who fought on the Dalai Lama’s side in a failed 1959 uprising, according to the paper, and later became a top political adviser to the Chinese Tibetan authorities. “I think the Dalai clique is our enemy and we should fight until the end,” he was quoted as saying.
The tone of the articles raised questions about China’s seriousness in preparing for negotiations with the Dalai Lama over restoring stability to Tibet, which has essentially been under government lockdown since deadly rioting in Lhasa, its capital, on March 14.
