Dharamsala, Oct 28 : Tibetan exiles will decide about the future of Tibetan movement during the special meeting being convened by spiritual leader the Dalai Lamaere on November 17.

Tibetan parliamentarians, government officials, representatives of Tibetan people from America, Europe and other parts of the world will attend the meeting.

The week-long special meeting of Tibetan exiles assumes importance in the wake of a senior aide of the Tibetan spiritual leader having earlier said that the Dalai Lama had lost hope of reaching an agreement with Beijing over Tibetan autonomy under Chinese rule.

"The Dalai Lama said such a meeting is necessary to discuss how we can push the dialogue process forward. To find ways and means to see how china could be made... to make a positive response to the gestures from the Tibetan side," said Thubten Samphel, spokesperson, Tibetan government-in-exile.

Tibetan youth reportedly keen on a more radical approach, feel that the meeting might not yield the desired result but would definitely convey a message to the Chinese government that the Dalai Lama continues to be the true leader of the Tibetan people.

"I believe there won't be any kind of strong outcome but the kind of meeting would indicate, will give a strong message to the people's republic of china that Dalai Lama still has a true representation," said Sonam, President regional Tibetan Youthongress.

Tibetan envoys and Chinese officials have met to try to ease tension in Tibet since violent riots broke out there in March.
