New Delhi: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has said India after
building a 'good' friendly relationship with China could play a role in
solving the Tibet issue.

"Sino-Indian relations must improve. It should not be just a diplomatic
smile but real sort of good friendship on the basis of trust (and) mutual
trust... We can build the genuine Hindi-Chini Bhai-Bhai (Indians and Chinese
are brothers) relations... I think, sooner or later it must develop. Because
Tibet is next to the border, so India with that trust with Chinese leaders
can help to reduce the problem... This is what I feel," the Dalai Lama told
NDTV in an interview.

He said that talks "is the only way forward" to solve the issue but
described the current Chinese policy on Tibet as 'unrealistic'.

He said the Tibetan struggle was not against the Chinese people but against
the policy makers of the country.

"We are not against the Chinese people, the Chinese policy. We are simply
campaigning against some of the Chinese unrealistic policy due to ignorance
or due to short sightedness."

He said that many Chinese were now coming out in support of the Tibetan
struggle, which is a sign of hope.
