The meeting, which took place at the White House on Thursday, was a low-key affair closed to the media.
"The president commended the Dalai Lama's ... commitment to non-violence and his pursuit of dialogue with the Chinese government," the White House said in a written statement after the nearly hour-long meeting.
Obama encouraged China and the Dalai Lama's envoys to keep up efforts to resolve their differences through negotiations, despite recent talks having yielded little progress.
The Dalai Lama, clad in sandals and burgundy robes, spoke to reporters on the White House driveway after the meeting, saying he had expressed to Obama his admiration for the United States as a "champion of democracy, freedom, human values"
Wonder how many blowjobs this religious idiot got to spout this bs......"champion of democracy, freedom, human values" - What kind of horse crap is this?
Democracy? What a joke. The majority of the us didnt want the vietnam war and iraq war.
Freedom and human values? What about the mass murders of east timor/burma/cambodia/iraq.....
