(TibetanReview.net, Jan06, 2015) – The exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala, India, held a meeting of its task force on negotiation with the government of China over Jan 5-6. The meeting was meant to review prospects for dialogue with China in the light of the prevailing situation both in Tibet and China, reported Tibet.net Jan 5.
This was the fifth meeting of the task force under the leadership of Sikyong Lobsang Sangay who was elected to the post in 2011 and who chaired the meeting.
So far 27 meetings of the task force have been held for the purposes of recommending policy matters and strategies to find a peaceful and mutually acceptable negotiated resolution to the issue of Tibet.
However, China’s staunch position remains that it will never engage in talks with the exile Tibetan administration or on any Tibet issue. It will talk, if at all, only with private representatives of the Dalai Lama, with the agenda being limited to the terms on which he will be allowed to “return” to China.
