March 18th 2008

Dharamsala, 18 March, 2008: During a meeting with some representatives of the Media this afternoon, His Holiness repeated what he told Jonathan Mirsky of the Observer, London, more than fifteen years ago that if the majority of the Tibetans in Tibet resorted to violence in their freedom struggle, he would have no option but to resign as spokesperson of the Tibetan people.
 
On the issue of independence, he reiterated that what he is seeking is meaningful autonomy for the Tibetan people.
 
He also reminded the Media not to quote him out of context.
