world news bulletin: Dalai Lama fears for the future of Tibet.

THE Dalai Lama said that the situation in his native Tibet is deteriorating and he has little faith that negotiations with the Chinese government will lead to greater autonomy for the region.

The exiled spiritual leader has followed a "middle way" approach with Beijing in which he seeks some form of autonomy that would allow Tibetans to freely practise their culture, language and religion. But lately he has grown increasingly frustrated and vocal about the lack of progress, despite the departure of two of his envoys for new talks with China last week.

"Now my faith in the Chinese government is becoming thinner, thinner, thinner," he told reporters in Tokyo yesterday.
