The Dalai Lama said he hopes that U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will work together for global peace. The exiled spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists said the world needed leaders with compassion.
The Dalai Lama made the remarks Saturday in New Delhi. He said the world is moving toward peace and non-violence, and he hopes Trump and Putin will come closer and work toward creating global peace.
The Dalai Lama had said in Mongolia in November that he had ’no worries’ about Trump’s election as US president and looked forward to meeting him after he took office. He has always regarded the US as the leader of the ’free world’ and wasn’t concerned about remarks made by Trump during the election campaign.
The Dalai Lama has met former US presidents, including four meetings with Obama. Such meetings anger Beijing, which accuses him of trying to split Tibet from China.
