Dalai Lama’s envoys to hold talks in Beijing

The Chinese government and the Dalai Lama’s representatives will meet in Beijing on Saturday to discuss the “current crisis” in Tibet and ways to bring peace to the region.

The talks are taking place more than a week after China decided to open a dialogue with the Dalai Lama.

The Dalai Lama’s special envoy Lodi Gyaltsen Gyari and envoy Kelsang Gyaltsen will hold “informal talks” with the representatives of the Chinese leadership, the so-called Tibetan government-in-exile announced here on Friday.
“Deep concerns”

During the talks, the envoys will convey the Dalai Lama’s “deep concerns” and also provide suggestions to bring peace to the region, a statement said.

Noting that China had indicated its intention to continue the dialogue, the statement said the Dalai Lama’s envoys would press for moving forward on the process for a “mutually satisfactory solution.”
