Lhasa, Apr 26(ANI): Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama has said he will continue with the non-violent quest for greater Tibetan autonomy, even after Beijing blamed him for inciting a wave of unrest.
"Recently things become very, very difficult but our stand - no change. Independence, complete independence is unrealistic - out of (the) question," The Telegraph quoted he Dalai Lama as saying at the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.
He added that non-violent "Middle Way" of seeking change from Beijing still has the support of 90 per cent of Tibetans
He stressed that Tibet's leadership-in-exile in India remains committed to a "meaningful talk" with the Chinese government to establish "meaningful autonomy" for the Tibetan minority.
The Dalai Lama admitted that negotiations with Chinese have not been productive though twelve Nobel laureates, including South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu have urged China to resume talks with him.
"Sometimes I describe totalitarian regimes as no ear, only mouth.Our approach failed to bring some concrete or positive result from the government, but the Chinese public, or Chinese intellectuals, or students who study in foreign countries - they are beginning to know the reality. That, I think, is a positive side, a significant result," he added.
China has repeatedly accused the Dalai Lama of inciting self-immolations among Tibetans in an effort to split the vast Himalayan region from the rest of the nation, a charge he denies.
Thirty four Tibetans, many of them Buddhist monks and nuns, are reported to have attempted to kill themselves by setting themselves on fire in China's Tibetan-inhabited areas in protest against the Chinese rule. (ANI)
