Wen Jiabao ready to hold talks with the Dalai Lama

Why is this announcement burried deep inside most recent news reports? It seems to me headline-worthy news.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao is ready to hold talks with the Dalai Lama, U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown told Parliament in London yesterday.

``I spoke to Premier Wen this morning and I made it absolutely clear that there had to be an end to violence in Tibet,'' Brown said.

``The premier told me that, subject to two things that the Dalai Lama has already said -- that he does not support the total independence of Tibet and that he renounces violence -- that he would be prepared to enter into dialogue with the Dalai Lama,'' he said.
