China may be open to a visit by the Dalai Lama next year

China has agreed to allow the Dalai Lama, Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, to send a three-man delegation to Peking, the official New China News Agency reported Thursday. The delegation is expected to prepare the ground for a visit the Dalai Lama hopes to make to Peking next year.

The Dalai Lama, regarded by his followers as a God-King, fled to India in 1959 after an abortive rebellion against Chinese rule in Tibet.
