The Dalai Lama condemns cultural genocide in Tibet

During an interview with Le Monde daily newspaper in his recent visit to France, His Holiness the Dalai Lama condemned China’s cultural genocide in Tibet, although he stressed that he remained open to negotiations with Beijing without pre-conditions. His Holiness emphasised that he was not demanding Tibet’s independence, only its autonomy.

The human rights situation had worsened in Tibet, said His Holiness, and emphasised that protecting the cultural heritage of Tibet has become his main concern.
