Dalai Lama envoy worries about China dialogue

The Tibetan envoy of the Dalai Lama fears that China may only be holding its latest round of talks because of the media coverage surrounding the Beijing Olympic Games.

"There is some widespread belief that they are only meeting because of the Olympics," he said of the talks, which could burnish China's international image weeks before the Games.

Protests disrupted the Olympic torch relay, and there is some view that some countries may boycott the opening ceremonies because of the Tibet situation.
