Dalai Lama Expects Talks to Resume

The announced today that he expects talks between his envoys and their Chinese counterparts to resume next month. From the New York Times:

[The Dalai Lama] expressed no particular optimism for what the next talks with China could produce — 30 years of on-and-off negotiations with Beijing have yielded nothing — but he said dialogue opened up at least a “possibility” of a breakthrough. Moreover, he said, after two months of sometimes violent demonstrations across the Tibetan areas of China, the government in Beijing could no longer pretend that there was no grievance.

“They no longer say there’s no issue,” the Dalai Lama said at Byrne Estate, the sprawling compound that houses his offices and residence amid a grove of cedar trees here in northern India. “They are showing some seriousness about the problem inside Tibet.”
