Dalai Lama reiterates threat to quit

Agence France-Presse, March 25, 2008

New Delhi, India -- EXILED spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has reiterated a threat to resign as leader of Tibet's exiles if there are more violent anti-Chinese protests inside or outside China.

``If the violent demonstrations continue, I would resign,'' the Buddhist leader said today.

``I think inside or outside China, if the demonstrators utilise violent methods, I am totally against it,'' the Dalai Lama said.

Last week the spiritual leader, who has been based in the northern Indian town of Dharamshala since a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, issued a similar warning.
