Ultimately, it is for the Tibetan and the Chinese peoples to find a mutually acceptable solution to the Tibetan issue. --10 March 1997

You know, my position is I'm seeking genuine autonomy. I'm not seeking independence. Of course, historically, I think Tibet was a separate nation. Whether in the past Tibet was part of China or not, it is up to history and legal experts. I am saying if you go back to the past, there are lots of problems there. But better to forget about past. History is history. Now look forward and then even two separate communities can easily join. That's my fundamental belief. --June 12 Zellerbach auditorium conversation between Orville Schell and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
