A Chinese government official says that when the Dalai Lama dies, it will trigger small shock waves in Tibet but won't result in serious instability.

Former Tibet Gov Qiangba Puncog told reporters in Beijing on Monday that the exiled spiritual leader still has religious clout but no political influence in China.

Puncog said Tibetans want the region to remain stable and that the Chinese government is committed to that goal.
