BEIJING: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said on Friday China was open to holding more talks with envoys for the Dalai Lama as long as the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader renounces what Beijing describes as separatism.
Chinese officials and envoys from the Dalai Lama, whom Beijing brands a "splittist", have held previous rounds of talks but little of substance has been achieved.
"This kind of talks can continue. The key is that the Dalai Lama must demonstrate his sincerity so that the talks can achieve substantive results," Wen told a news conference at the end of the annual session of the Chinese parliament.
