US officials to meet Dalai Lama Monday
Dharamsala, Sep 13 According to IANS, A US team will meet Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, in this north Indian hill station Monday to finalise details of his proposed US visit and meeting with President Barack Obama next month, officials said Sunday.
Three US officials, including White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, Sunday met Tibetan Prime Minister Samdhong Rinpoche and the Dalai Lama’s special envoy Lodi Gyari to finalise the proposed meeting between the spiritual leader and Obama, the local officials said.
Rinpoche and Gyari refused to comment on the visit of the US officials to the headquarters of the Tibetan government-in-exile, which is not recognised by any country.
“We only know that the Dalai Lama is reaching here from his foreign visits late this (Sunday) evening. We have no information regarding the proposed meeting between the US officials and the Dalai Lama,” Rinpoche told IANS.
Sources in the Dalai Lama’s office said that modalities regarding the meeting between the Buddhist monk and the US president “are being worked out”.
The Dalai Lama’s secretary Tenzin Taklha has said: “I don’t want to comment regarding the meeting between the Dalai Lama and Obama. Yes this is right that the Dalai Lama is visiting US in October to deliver lectures and to attend functions there.”
