Question of the Day
Spiritual leader hits China’s policy
“We are not seeking independence,” the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader said at the start of a five-day visit to Germany. “Since we have a multicultural heritage and rich Buddhist tradition, we need genuine autonomy.”
Protests against Chinese rule began in March in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, on the 49th anniversary of a failed uprising against Chinese rule.
Government, rebels meet for talks
OSLO — The Philippine government and the rebel National Democratic Front (NDF) met in Norway for three days of informal peace talks ending yesterday, the first such meeting in almost three years, Norwegian diplomats said yesterday.
“The [government of the Philippines] and the NDF have exchanged views on the status of the peace process,” the Norwegian foreign ministry said in a statement. “The parties have agreed to meet again, and have invited Norway to facilitate a meeting later this year.”
The military wing of the NDF has waged an armed rebellion to set up a Maoist state in the Southeast Asian country that has killed more than 40,000. Since 1986, Manila has held on-and-off peace talks with the NDF.
