Dalai Lama speaks to the BBC


The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has said the Tibetan issue is a Chinese domestic problem.

His statement, given in an interview with the BBC, may breathe new life into the deadlocked talks between him and the government in Beijing.

Shirong Chen, of the BBC's Chinese Service, started by asking the Dalai Lama for his thoughts on the recent violence between Uighurs and Han Chinese in China's western Xinjiang province.
