China Says No Progess Made at Tibet Talks

From AP:

China said Monday that no progress was made at recent talks with representatives of the Dalai Lama and said it would never accept the exiled leader’s demands for greater autonomy for the mountain region.

The talks last week were frank and sincere but the “two sides had great divergence over China’s policy over Tibet,” said Zhu Weiqun, a vice minister of the United Front, the government department in charge of the talks.

“The sovereignty is the most fundamental issue. The Dalai has — by denying Chinese sovereignty over Tibet — been trying to seek a legal basis for his claims of independence or semi-independence over Tibet,” Zhu told a news conference.
