The Dalai Lama says he's losing trust in Chinese officials and has
warned that Tibetan people are facing "great danger."

He made the comments in the northern Indian town of Dharamsala were
Tibetan leaders have concluded a week of talks.

The exiled spiritual leader says in the next 20 years, if Tibetans
are not careful in their actions and planning, then there's a "great
danger" ahead for the Tibetan community.

The Dalai Lama also declared he will not retire, quashing speculation
about the future of the 73-year-old leader.

Earlier, Tibetan exiles backed the Dalai Lama's approach to achieve
greater autonomy in Tibet.
