"Within the Chinese citizens there's a re-awakening (觉醒), so to speak, that perhaps the Dalai Lama is the best chance that Beijing has," he said. But there is little evidence to suggest that China is willing to make definite concessions (明确的让步)to the Tibetan government-in-exile. Last week senior Chinese leaders held a major meeting about Tibet - the first in nine years - in which they indicated they would continue their hard-line approach....
