Tibet is India's responsibility: The Dalai Lama


Dalai Lama
New Delhi, Sept 18:In the wake of the Chinese President's visit to India, the Dalai Lama reminded India of its responsibility toward India. "Tibet's problem is India's problem", he said. This came from the great spiritual leader even as loud protests could be heard from outside New Delhi's Hyderabad House where Modi and Jinping held summit talks.

The 79-year old leader said,"Actually the Tibetan problem (is) also (a) problem of India. Before 1950, you see the whole northern border, really peaceful, no single soldier. So India's problem."

He further added,"So sooner or later you have to solve these problems, not by force but by understanding and talk. Understanding comes through talk, only through personal contact."

Citing his reason for exile from his own country since 1959 and the strained relations that both the Asian countries share over Tibet, Dalai Lama called Xi more open minded and realistic than his predecessor Hu Jintao.

"So he can learn more things from India. After all, Sino-India relations on the basis on new trust is very important, very essential," he further added.

The Lama supported !meaningful autonomy" of Tibet but was misinterpreted as 'splittist'. While the premiers of both the countries were discussing trade and business and border issues, Tibetan students protested against China until they were dragged away from the venue.
