Jammu: Buddhist spiritual leader the Dalai
Lama on Wednesday hoped the Kashmir situation will improve through
talks.

"Through talks and through understanding, I think things
will improve (in Kashmir)", he told reporters after
inaugurating a photo exhibition at Kala Kendra here.

He was replying to queries about his view on the
situation in the Valley in the wake of 20 years of terrorism.

Earlier in the day, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar
Abdullah, accompanied by cabinet ministers and other senior
officers, received the Tibetan spiritual leader at Jammu
Airport.

The Dalai Lama was on a day-long visit to several
Buddhist places on the outskirts of the city.
