The ongoing widespread protests throughout Tibet and China's violent crackdown has plunged the future of meetings between the envoys of the Dalai Lama and Beijing into uncertainty. Beijing has claimed that "there is sufficient evidence to prove this incident was organized, premeditated and meticulously orchestrated by the Dalai clique," while the Tibetan government in exile attributes the protests to the Chinese government's destructive and repressive rule of Tibet.
Kunleng invites Wang Lixiong, a writer from Beijing and co-sponsorer of "Twelve Suggestions for Dealing with the Tibetan Situation by Chinese Intellectuals", and Buchung K. Tsering, Vice President of International Campaign for Tibet and a member of the Dalai Lama's delegation to China, to discuss the implications of recent the events for the future of dialogue between the two sides.
