Dalai Lama Urges Caution in Tibet’s Dealings With China

From The Washington Post:

The Dalai Lama said it might be premature to cut off ties with China, which was one proposal at a week-long meeting of 600 of his countrymen at the headquarters of his government-in-exile in this north Indian town.

“Wait a month” and “then we’ll see” whether the Tibetan side will seek future contacts, the Dalai Lama told journalists at a Sunday morning news conference at his Namgyal Monastery.

With the Tibetan movement seeking fresh ideas this week, he stepped back from offering alternatives to his “middle way” approach, which seeks autonomy and compromise with China. Exiled leaders this week said they might push for full independence if China refuses to grant it autonomy soon.
