Dalai Lama sees Yugoslav hope
The overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic in
Yugoslavia shows that China, too, must follow
the global trend towards democracy, the Dalai
Lama said yesterday.
"China has to go along with the world trend,"
the Buddhist spiritual leader, who fled his
homeland in 1959, said.
"There is no future for totalitarian systems.
The uncertainties in today's Yugoslavia will
come to a rest in a few days because it is the
will of the people. This is what is needed in
"I am not seeking independence, but a high
degree of autonomy for Tibet within the
People's Republic [of China] to cover all of
Tibetan territory, for the preservation of the
Buddhist culture, of the Tibetan language, and
to protect the environment," he said.
The Dalai Lama, on his sixth visit to Hungary
since 1982, also said he expected "more
freedom, more rule of law, and more
elections" in China, appreciating the country's
drive "for stability and unity. But unity under
the gun is not good, not the road to stability."
