Dalai Lama continues China talks

Two of Dalai Lama's envoys left Thursday for Beijing for the eighth round of negotiations with the Chinese government since 2002.

Also, the Dalai Lama has started on Friday his week-long visit to Japan to speak about spirituality. This is his first trip since recovering from health problems.

"The Dalai Lama, who has lived in India since fleeing Tibet in 1959, is a frequent visitor to Japan where he enjoys an active following.

However, unlike many Western nations, Japan - which has an uncomfortable relationship with China - has almost always refused high-level official contacts with the Dalai Lama and no officials are scheduled to meet him on the current trip."
