China rejects Dalai Lama's demand for greater autonomy

August 12, 2013

August 6, 2013: China today rejected the Dalai Lama's demand for a "high degree of autonomy" for Tibet saying it went against the Chinese Constitution and the "fundamental interests of Tibetan Buddhism".

"Dalai Lama's so-called "high-degree of autonomy" in "Greater Tibet" has "run counter to China's Constitution, the law, and the fundamental interests of Tibetan Buddhism," Yu Zhengsheng, a senior leader of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) has said in his talks with Buddhist monks and religious officials during his current tour of Tibet.
