Dalai Lama has given up on Tibet talks with China: "There hasn't been any positive response from the Chinese side"

The Dalai Lama will abandon efforts to persuade China to allow autonomy in Tibet, the exiled Tibetan leader has declared.

“As far as I’m concerned I have given up,” the Dalai Lama said October 25 from Dharamsala, India, home to the Tibetan government-in-exile, according to the Associated Press.

It’s now up to the 6 million Tibetans to determine a new plan, the 73-year-old Buddhist leader said. Around 300 Tibetan delegates will hold a special meeting next month in India, according to Reuters.
