New Delhi, Mar 29 (UNI) The Dalai Lama today said he was waiting at the ''negotiating table'' for the Chinese government to discuss and find an amicable settlement to the Tibet problem.

''We are open to dialogue with the Chinese government. We are waiting for them at the table. Unfortunately, I do not have power to bring them (Chinese) on the table,'' the Tibetan spiritual leader said at a news conference here.

He said the contact with the Chinese government, initiated in 1993, had seized in 1997, but was later renewed in 2002.

The Dalai Lama said the Chinese government accused him for not controlling the situation in Tibet. ''How can I? I am helpless. I just pray. Unfortunately, the people who have gun, believe that they are worshippers of gun.'' Since March 10 this year, the Tibetan spiritual leader said he was experiencing a lot of fear, worry, anxiety and disturbance. ''My mind is disturbed.'' He also said the Chinese were very critical of him because he was not acting like their ''Yes Minister''.
