Lies can't work in 21st century: Dalai Lama tells China
March 27, 2008 15:42 IST
The Tibetan spiritual leader, who is here in connection with a meditation workshop, said he was appealing to his "friends" across the world to express concern over Tibet.
"One thing I want to express is that it is the time for the Chinese Government or the officials concerned to accept the reality. That is more important," he told reporters.
"In any case, we are in the 21st century... our lies cannot work," the Dalai Lama said.
His comments come in the backdrop of persistent accusations by China that he had "masterminded" the recent violence in Tibet despite his denials.
On Saturday, the Dalai Lama will lead a prayer meeting in Rajghat, the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi [Images], in memory of all those who have lost their lives during the recent unrest in Tibet.
