BEIJING -- Du Qinglin, head of the United Front Work Department of
the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, met with
private representatives of the 14th Dalai Lama in Beijing recently,
the department said Thursday.

Du, also vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese
People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), told the two
representatives Lodi Gyari and Kelsang Gyaltsen at the meeting that
the central government's policy towards the Dalai Lama is consistent
and explicit and the door of dialogue is always open, according to a
statement issued by the department.

The Dalai Lama should openly and explicitly promise and prove it in
his action not to support activity to disturb the Beijing Olympic
Games, not to support plot to fan violent criminal activities, not to
support and concretely curb the violent terrorist activities of the
"Tibetan Youth Congress" and not to support any argument and activity
to seek "Tibet independence" and split the region from China, he said.
