"Mr Lodi Gyaltsen Gyari, special envoy of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Mr Kelsand Gyaltsen, also envoy of His Holiness leading a high level delegates comprising of two senior assistants, Bhuchung K. Tsering, member of Tibetan Task Force and Tenzin Phuntsok, secretary of Tibetan information Department will leave on 25 January for new talks with Chinese officials in Chinese Hunan Province," a Tibetan official told The Tibet Post (TPI).
China-Tibet Talks stuck at a standstill after the envoys of His Holiness the Dalai Lama presenting a "Memorandum" to Chinese leadership two years ago asking a genuine autonomy for the Tibetan People.
"The Tibet issue needs to be resolved through dialogue and negotiation between the Tibetan and People's Republic of China leadership," Samdhong Rinpoche, prime minister of the Tibetan government in exile, told Asia Times Online last week. "I wish Tibetans' hopes will become a reality."
Both sides have been officially declared that no real progress was made during seventh and eight round of talks held in 2008. China-Tibet talks have resumed after two-day meeting of the Tibetan Task Force for negotiations concluded last week at the headquarters of the Center Tibetan Government In-Exile and another meeting so called the fifth conference on Tibetan Work concluded last week in Beijing attended by top Chinese officials, including President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao.
