The Dalai Lama said his relations with Beijing have stalled again and demanded that China allow a referendum on its control of Tibet.

"If the Tibetans are truly happy, the Chinese authorities should have no difficulty in holding a plebiscite in Tibet," the exiled Tibetan leader said in Dharmsala during a speech to Tibetans at an annual ceremony to mark the failed 1959 rebellion against Chinese rule.
