A New Round of Talks with the Dalai Lama, and U.S. Diplomacy Fails Again
The Dalai Lama’s representatives are beginning a new round of talks with the Chinese government, after a 15-month hiatus.

But despite renewed attention to the Tibetan issue, there is little reason to believe this round of talks is any more likely than before to lead to a breakthrough. Another failure for U.S. diplomacy?
