Dalai Lama asks the US for help

By Ana P.

The Dalai Lama engaged in a meeting with US Assistant Secretary in order to ask the US for support in finding a solution to the Tibet conflict. However, during the meeting with Paula Dobriansky, the Dalai Lama didn’t specify exactly in what form the support could consist.

“At the moment we need your help," said the head of the Tibetan Buddhists and leader of the exile government on Monday, at the meeting with the Dobriansky, which took place in Michigan. He also pronounced his sincere acknowledgement towards the US for expressing their concern in connection to China’s Tibet policy.

Dobriansky once again called out for a dialogue between Beijing and the Dalai Lama. Nevertheless, the meeting was sharply criticized by Beijing and China which, nowadays, still rejects every dialogue with the Dalai Lama.
