Two Tibetan envoys will arrive in China on Saturday for talks with the Chinese leadership after bloody riots in Lhasa, a spokesman for the Tibetan government in exile said.

"During this brief visit, the envoys will take up the urgent issue of the current crisis in the Tibetan areas," spokesman Thubten Samphel told AFP on Friday.

"They will convey His Holiness the Dalai Lama's deep concerns about the Chinese authorities' handling of the situation and also provide suggestions to bring peace to the region."
