    “WEN (voice of interpreter): In many places all over the world, the Dalai Lama keeps preaching about the idea of the so-called autonomy in the greater Tibetan region. And actually, the so-called autonomy that he pursues is actually to use religion to intervene in politics. And they want to separate the so-called “greater Tibetan region” from the motherland.

    And many people in the United States have no idea how big is the so-called “greater Tibetan region.” The so-called “greater Tibetan region,” preached by the Dalai Lama, actually covers Tibet, Sichuan, Yunnan, Qinghai and Gansu – altogether, five provinces. And the area covered by this so-called “greater Tibetan region” accounts for a quarter of China’s territory.

    For decades, our policy towards the Dalai Lama remains unchanged. That is, as long as the Dalai Lama is willing to recognize that Tibet is an inalienable part of China’s territory, and as long as the Dalai Lama gives up his separatist activities, we are willing to have contact and talks with him or his representatives. Now, sincerity holds the key to producing results out of the talks.”

    Maybe Zakaria should have invited the Dalai Lama along to have a debate with Premier Wen. 🙂
