China - Tibet talks begin, and we have.... Silence?

At least from the inside.

No news about what went on behind closed doors between the Dalai Lama's envoys and the Chinese government. However, we do have some delicious sound bytes from both parties on the day of the talks, keeping with their usual messages to international media.

From Tibetan government in exile: Hoping for results, while reiterating the call for international support of Tibet's not-quite-independence.

From those in employ of the Chinese government: The Dalai Lama's followers incited violence.

In conclusion, more of the same. Still, it doesn't have to mean more of the same ahead. I hope for the best, and look forward to good news when the talks are done.
