    Dalai Lama angle to China stopping movement of Kailash yatris Dipanjan Roy Chaudhury NEW DELHI: China has hardened its stand on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) by stopping movement of Indian pilgrims for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through Nathula Pass.

The Chinese move came ahead of a meeting between PM Modi and Trump in Washington. The two leaders are expected to put in place an arrangement for streng .. It is...

    Like so many countries from the former Soviet bloc, Mongolia faced a terrible economic upheaval at the end of the Soviet Union. In the first few years, inflation went up over 250 percent; employment went down. And people started drinking much more heavily. "Alcoholism was devastating during the economic hardships of the '90s," writes Jargalsaikhan Mendee, a political scientist and former Mongolian defense attaché to the United States, in an email to Goats and Soda. The Dalai Lama says he made a difference. In an interview last Sunday with news comedian John Oliver, the Tibetan spiritual leader said, "I suggested...

    Students at the University of California, San Diego are protesting an upcoming visit by the Dalai Lama – claiming the Tibetan leader is “oppressive”. Chinese students are leading objections to the event, which will see the Dalai Lama give a commencement speech on graduation day. They have claimed that his presence is offensive because of his campaign to make Tibet more independent – contrary to the Communist government’s position that Tibet is a region of China under their control.

    Chinese official says U.S. should stop using Dalai Lama to stir up trouble REUTERS BEIJING – The United States should stop using the Dalai Lama to create trouble for China, a senior Chinese official in charge of Tibet affairs told an influential state-run newspaper. The U.S. is damaging ties with China, said Zhu Weiqun, head of the ethnic and religious affairs committee of the top advisory body to China’s parliament, according to the Global Times. The Global Times, a tabloid known for writing strongly worded, hawkish and nationalist editorials, is published by the Communist Party’s flagship paper. In response to...

    ULAANBAATAR (Reuters) - Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said on Wednesday that he would visit U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, a meeting that would infuriate Beijing which views the Nobel Peace Prize-winning monk as a dangerous separatist. Speaking during a visit to Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar and asked about the U.S. election, the Dalai Lama said he had always considered the United States a "leading nation of the free world".

    IMAGE: Activists dressed as Chinese soldiers and a Tibetan monk perform a street drama depicting the Tibetan uprising 52 years ago against Chinese rule. Photograph: Pichi Chuang/Reuters Tibet continues to be an enigma to all visitors. My two visits have been no different. One sees massive Chinese investment in road and railway infrastructure. Modern skyscrapers are coming up at a frenetic pace to house migrants from the mainland. Yet, Tibet presents a sight of a state under foreign siege. A deceptive calm hides the underlying tension. There is no cheer in the air. The story of Tibet is a saga...

    A meeting with the Dalai Lama and a few pictures on social media might have negatively affected Lady Gaga's stardom in China. The pop star met with the leader of the Buddhist faith on Sunday while he was speaking in Indiana. Before the meeting, Gaga was arguably one of the most popular Western musicians in mainland China. But after she shared photos of herself and the Dalai Lama on Instagram, her account was flooded with negative comments. One user posted: "The way the Chinese feel is just like you were shaking hands with (Osama) bin Laden." Another wrote: "This is...

    The Dalai Lama was forced to answer some difficult questions during his trip to the US - about everything from terrorism in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting to the vocal criticism of President Obama by the Chinese after he hosted the Tibetan spiritual leader in the White House. But none of those questions gave his holiness as much trouble as Fox News host Bret Baier asking him during an interview on Wednesday if he had ever seen the film Caddyshack. Baier and his guest had been having a discussion about terrorism and the Muslim faith when the political...

    Mainz, Germany — The Dalai Lama thinks Europe has let in "too many" refugees. The Tibetan spiritual leader said that "we feel the misery" of each individual refugee and that humans have a "responsibility to help" — but that there are "too many" who have been accepted in Europe. Image: The Dalai Lama The Dalai Lama BEN STANSALL / AFP - Getty Images "Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country. Germany is Germany," he laughed in an interview published Tuesday with Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper. "There are so many." The Dalai Lama said that "from a moral...

    The Dalai Lama said in an interview published Thursday that Europe has accepted “too many” refugees, and that they should eventually return to help rebuild their home countries. “When we look into the face of every single refugee, especially the children and women, we can feel their suffering,” said the Tibetan spiritual leader, who has himself lived in exile for over half a century. “A human being who is a bit more fortunate has the duty to help them. On the other hand, there are too many now,” he said, according to the German translation of the interview in the...

    When Saudi Arabia’s King Salman visited the White House on Friday, President Barack Obama did something that at least one news reporter characterized as “very unusual.” No, he did not bow again. After all, there’d be nothing unusual in that for Obama. But CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller took to social media to say the president appeared at the West Wing portico to personally welcome Salman: Obama’s behavior Friday was a far cry from how the Dali Lama was treated when visiting the White House in 2010, when the spiritual leader of Tibet was forced to exit through...

    After the conclusion of the CPC Central Committee and State Council's 6th Forum on Tibetan Work, Chinese president Xi Jinping stated that the focus of policy towards Tibet should be centered on maintaining national integrity and unity among Chinese people, as well as ensuring the long-term peaceful governance of the region and to crackdown on separatism and maintain an unshakeable stance against the campaign of the Dalai Lama and his followers, according to Duowei News, a media outlet run by overseas Chinese. Xi also came up with a catchy 20-character summary of his Tibet policy which roughly translates as, "Rule...
