Envoys from the Dalai Lama in China

As reported in Reuters India:

Envoys of Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, flew to China on Friday in hopes of resuming dialogue, but a member of Tibet's parliament-in-exile was not optimistic about a breakthrough.

Lodi Gyari, the Dalai Lama's top envoy in Washington, and Kelsang Gyaltsen arrived in Shanghai from India, accompanied by two senior assistants, according to a source with knowledge of the trip.

"It is important to go to Beijing to meet people. But instead the envoys are being shown how good China is doing," said Khedroob Thondup, a member of Tibet's parliament-in-exile.
China and the Dalai Lama's envoys have been engaged in conciliatory talks since 2002, although little progress has been made. Analysts say the desire for dialogue is driven in part by fear on both sides that if the winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize dies in exile, it could lead to trouble in his homeland.
