Dalai Lama willing to go to China if there is a concrete proposalMarch 20th, 2008 - 6:24 pm ICT by admin
Dharamsala, Mar 20 (ANI): Tibetan religious leader the Dalai Lama on Thursday said that he is willing to go to Beijing, but if some concrete proposal comes from the Chinese Government.
Holding China responsible for the unrest and tension in Tibet, Dalai Lama said that Chinese polices were responsible for problems in Tibet and it had nothing to do with the people of China.
He also said that he has no moral authority to stop the agitating Tibetans, who have for long cherished the unfulfilled dream.
Tibetan exiles across the globe were expressing their solidarity with Tibetans in China.
Tibetans want the exiled Dalai Lama to be allowed to live in Tibet.
The crackdown on the protests in Tibet and neighbouring Chinese provinces had sparked calls for a boycott of the Games.
China has accused the Dalai Lama, of orchestrating monk-led protests and rioting — the most serious in the Himalayan region for nearly two decades — in a bid to wreck the August 8-24 Games.
The spiritual leader has denied masterminding the protests, which culminated last Friday riots in Lhasa.
The exiled Tibetan Government claims that so far around 100 people have died in the clashes in Lhasa and other Tibetan cities. Beijing, however, says that only 13 “innocent civilians” have been killed in the violence. (ANI)
