Tibetan Spiritual leader Dalai Lama 14th, while speaking in a lecture in New Delhi to mark the 60th anniversary of his exile to India, said that Tibet can remain in China only if Beijing recognizes and respected the region's distinct culture and autonomy.

"Tibetan area is recognized and it should have the same right to the preservation of own culture if it remains then it's okay to stay in China for mutual benefits", said Dalai Lama.
