The Dalai Lama has said that he is ready to speak with Chinese officials about matters affecting Tibetans and that he is open to both official and informal discussion.
“I am always available to speak. China is now aware of how powerful the Tibetan people’s spirit is. So they want to get in touch with me to handle their Tibetan issues. The Dalai Lama was cited by ANI as stating, “I am also prepared.
The Tibetan spiritual leader emphasized that he and his followers were not seeking independence but rather had long opted to remain a member of the People’s Republic of China at a news conference in Dharamshala before beginning his travel to Delhi and Ladakh. The Dalai Lama admitted that China was changing and that there was a rising desire among Chinese authorities to approach him, both publicly and informally.
