China reiterates willingness to talk to Dalai Lama, without his autonomy proposal

(TibetanReview.net, Mar 06, 2009) — China again said Mar 3 that its door for talks with the Dalai Lama was still open but rejected any consideration of his proposal for the resolution of the Tibet issue. It said the holding of the talks held thus far with his envoys was itself a proof of what it called its sincerity and kindness. “As an effort to accommodate the requests of the Dalai Lama, the Chinese central government held three rounds of talks with private envoys of the Dalai Lama last year,” it quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang as saying at a regular briefing.

Qin has said the door for talks was still open, but it was not at all clear what the purpose of it would be. “The talks demonstrated the Chinese government’s sincerity and kindness. Our attitude remains unchanged,” he had said, responding to a question concerning the relationship between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama.

Qin had also maintained that the Dalai Lama’s envoys decided to end talks with the Chinese central government last November and accused them of sticking to “the proposals that aim to seek a semi or complete independence” referring to their “Memorandum for All Tibetans to Enjoy Genuine Autonomy”.
