Shambala Sun has a story on how Wikileaks has shed a little light on Bejing’s continued anger at the Dalai Lama’s presence on the global stage. While most of what we may learn about Tibet and its troubled relationship with China probably won’t be radically enhanced by this Wikileaks disclosure, it does suggest that China continues to view the Dalai Lama, and his movement, as something deeply threatening.
The latest public unveiling of official and unofficial state secrets by Wikileaks has provided a treasure-trove of information that reveals new diplomatic tensions and elucidates others. While only a snippet of the 251,287 cables (diplomatic messages) from US embassies and consulates around the world have been made publicly available through Wikileaks and various news outlets, what can already be gleaned anticipates a broader understanding of international relations on a range of issues, including Tibet.
