China to hold talks with Dalai Lama envoys

BEIJING – Chinese state media says Beijing is set to hold new talks with representatives of the Dalai Lama "in the near future."

The one-sentence dispatch by the Xinhua News Agency released Wednesday did not give any other details. The Chinese Foreign Ministry says it does not have any comment.

The report comes a day after Tibetan officials in India said the Dalai Lama had called a special meeting of Tibetan exiles next month about the foundering discussions with China.

The Tibetan spiritual leader said over the weekend that he has given up on efforts to persuade Beijing to allow greater autonomy for Tibet under Chinese rule. He says he will now ask the Tibetan people to decide how to move forward.
