Beijing Olympics Vs Tibet
The government of China has claimed that the Dalai Lama is cooperating with Islamic extremists as part of a plot to bring the country into crises before the Olympic Games, which are due to be half in Beijing this Summer.
The official newspaper of the government of China claimed that “the Dalai Lama is scheming to take the Beijing Olympics hostage to force the Chinese government to make concessions to Tibet independence.”
Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama is a charismatic figure and noted public speaker was the first to travel to the West. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, honorary Canadian citizenship in 2006, and the United States Congressional Gold Medal on 17 October 2007.
The last two awards and great relations with the White House probably are not the right tools to involve China to discussion.
