Dalai Lama welcomes Chinese offer for talks

AFP:

The Dalai Lama on Friday welcomed China’s offer to meet his envoy for talks after weeks of protests over Tibet and repeated calls from the exiled spiritual leader for dialogue with Beijing.

China’s state-run Xinhua news agency reported that talks would take place in the coming days, which the Dalai Lama’s spokesman described as “a step in the right direction.”

“These talks may not lead up to much but they can put China in a more favourable light ahead of the (Beijing) Olympics,” he said.

Anand Ojha, a Sino-Indian political analyst at Delhi University, said the invitation may prove hollow.

“Who says China has blinked? It’s Chinese chequers as this invitation takes out the wind from the Tibetans’ campaign of protests ahead of the Olympics which was a becoming a matter of huge concern for China,” he said.

China, China, China. All manipulation and saving face tactics before their big world unveiling. Disgusting. I just do not understand how they can accuse His Holiness as a “instigator” if 1) Tibetan Buddhist does not encourage that type of violence, 2) He WON the Nobel PEACE prize for all of his work and dedication. I just really hope one day Tibet and all of China’s colonies are able to claim some ounce of liberation in our lifetime.

  1. Don’t let the Regime fool you. The Dalai Lama is little more than a construct of the murderous bourgeois dogs like George W. Bush, Richard Gere, and Kobe Bryant. He has no place in our struggle for improvement, as these pigs would have you believe. Stop being blinded by the foolish rhetoric of the inconsequential.
