China calls on Dalai Lama to 'put aside illusions' about talks

BEIJING (Reuters) - China on Wednesday urged the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to "put aside his illusions" about talks on Tibet's future, and accused him of insincerity and covertly pushing for independence, rather than autonomy.

China has ruled Tibet with an iron fist since troops "peacefully liberated" the region in 1950. The Dalai Lama fled into exile in India in 1959 after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule.
