London, Dec.10 (ANI): Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has said that giving the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack is "a little early".he Dalai Lama told Sky News: "I think if you are realistic, it may have been a little early but it doesn't matter, I know Obama is a very able person."

"Sometimes these individual persons rely on different advice from different people so like former President Bush junior, as a human being I really love him, really wonderful person, very honest, very truthful. But I think due to his advisers' views, some of his policies have been a disaster."

The spiritual leader described Obama as "young and energetic".

"I think the Nobel Peace Prize gives him more encouragement and also gives him more moral personal responsibility," he said.

President Obama declined to meet the Dalai Lama during a recent visit to Washington, with observers pointing out it may have been awkward to do so just before the President travelled to China.

But the Tibetan leader says he hopes to have a meeting with Obama in the next few months. (ANI)
