The Dalai Lama's special envoy said the exiled leader of Tibet's Buddhists will use a prestigious congressional award ceremony next week to appeal to China's leaders to resolve the dispute over Tibet. Lodi Gyari told reporters at the National Press Club on Friday that China, which has protested strongly the award for the man they see as a separatist, should not worry that the Dalai Lama will push for Tibetan independence. "I do hope the Chinese will see this as a good opportunity," Gyari said. He added that the Dalai Lama hoped Beijing will have an "undiluted opportunity" to hear his message. "We are not talking about independence," he said. "We are talking about Tibetans having complete freedom when it comes to matters of religion" and culture.
