NEW DELHI - Tibetan spiritual leader the

Dalai Lama has "more or less fully recovered" from a chest

infection, his press secretary told Reuters on Thursday, but

added it was not clear when he would be discharged from

hospital.

The 83-year-old Nobel peace laureate, who fled to India in

early 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule, was

admitted to hospital in the capital this week.

"His Holiness is much better now, "Tseten Samdup Chhoekyapa

told Reuters. 

"He is more or less fully recovered. But, of

course, the treatment and his medication will continue for a few

days more."
