Fence-mending talks between Chinese officials and the two aides of the Dalai Lama, the first since an eruption of Tibetan protests and deadly riots in March, were scheduled to start on Sunday in the city of Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, with China's president Hu Jintao saying he was hoping for a "positive outcome" from the talks. The unrest, the most serious challenge to Chinese rule in the mountainous region for nearly two decades, prompted anti-China protests around the world that disrupted the international leg of the Olympic torch relay and led to calls for Western leaders to boycott August's Beijing Games.

Yaks laden with supplies walk past the large camp for the Olympic torch's ascent of Mount Everest, also known as Qomolangma, in the Tibet Autonomous Region April 30, 2008. A Chinese meteorologist on Wednesday ruled out a climb for a special Olympic flame up Mount Everest for at least three days because of the weather. The Everest flame is separate from the globetrotting Olympic torch that arrived in Hong Kong on Wednesday after a tumultuous world tour that has been beset by protests and counter-protests over Tibet.

A Tibetan man uses yaks to plough a field in Baima Township, located around 200 kilometres (124 miles) north of the city of Mianyang, Sichuan province, March 38, 2008. Across China's mountainous west, armed troops watch over the Tibetan monasteries and towns that have emerged as hotbeds of protest kindled by traditions of defiance and newer economic grievances. More than the Tibet Autonomous Region itself, where the upsurge of anti-Chinese protests and riots erupted last month, the historically Tibetan parts of neighbouring provinces have defied efforts to smother unrest with troop convoys, roadblocks and patrols, and warnings of harsh punishment to lawbreakers.
