The recent talks between Beijing and Dharamsala held in Beijing on July 1st and 2nd, have been described as 'difficult' by Mr. Lodi Gyari, lead negotiator on the Tibetan team, and 'important advance' by the Chinese side whose media reports on the event seemed to indicate a slight softening of rhetoric.
Today's Kunleng will discuss the statements on the meeting from both the Tibetan and Chinese sides and look at the issues involved in the larger context of Chinese politics, Tibetan struggle, International attention and the Olympics.
