The Buddhist spiritual leader the Dalai Lama during his visit in Ulan Bator said that he hoped to meet with the elected President of the United States Donald trump after his inauguration, despite the prospect of angering Beijing.
“I think there are some problems with the trip to the USA, but I intend to go to see the new President”, – quotes His Holiness Reuters. The Dalai Lama also said that he always considered the United States “the leading country of the free world”.
In his speech, in English the Tibetan spiritual leader said that during the election campaign, the candidates allow themselves great freedom in the rhetoric, but after the election, when they bear the entire responsibility, they are forced to adjust their policy in accordance with the realities.
As reminds TV channel Sky, the Chinese authorities previously urged Mongolia to cancel a four-day visit of the Dalai Lama, indicating that China considers him a separatist leader of the Tibetan movement. In turn, the 81-year-old monk insisted that his trip had no political goals, moreover, he publicly called for the independence of Tibet for more than 40 years.
Current President Barack Obama met with the Dalai Lama four times, the last time in June 2016. The meeting was preceded by statements of official Beijing about the prospects of the complications in us-China relations.
And two months ago the Dalai Lama in the TV show Good Morning Britain parodied Donald trump, passing its distinctive styling and manner of speech. Buddhist leader has ridiculed a Republican after the question-show host Piers Morgan about whether he met when any of the presidential candidates. At the same time he assured that he will go to the White house if trump becomes President, and invite him in.
