The Dalai Lama and the US envoy for Tibet plan to meet later this month over the unrest in Tibet, the US State Department said on Monday.

Undersecretary Paula Dobriansky will sit down with Tibet's spiritual leader on April 21 in Michigan to discuss efforts to persuade China to open dialogue with the Dalai Lama aimed at ending the crisis, deputy spokesman Tom Casey said.

Beijing launched a crackdown last month against demonstrations protesting Chinese role of the province. The Bush administration has urged China to meet with the Dalai Lama.
