To meet with/Talk to Dalai's private representative

BEIJING, April 25 (Xinhua) -- China's central government department will meet with Dalai's private representative in the coming days, Xinhua learned from official sources on Friday.
"In view of the requests repeatedly made by the Dalai side for resuming talks, the relevant department of the central government will have contact and consultation with Dalai's private representative in the coming days," an official said.
"The policy of the central government towards Dalai has been consistent and the door of dialogue has remained open," he said.
"It is hoped that through contact and consultation, the Dalai side will take credible moves to stop activities aimed at splitting China, stop plotting and inciting violence and stop disrupting and sabotaging the Beijing Olympic Games so as to create conditions for talks."

CNN put it as top news and titled China to meet with Dalai Lama rep.

I don't understand why CNN add an "rep" in that sentence, I checked the word in Kingdictionary but dindn't figure it out.

The BBC published the news quickly after Xinhua news Agency,put it into Asia-pacific edition named Beijing 'to talk to Dalai aides' and keep the Syria 'had covert nuclear scheme' on main page.In the end of the passage, BBC emphasis on "Beijing cracked down on the protests with force" again.I don't agree with these stern and subjective words.
