What May Face Barack Obama for Meeting with Dalai Lama

Tibet's government in exile Tuesday dismissed a strongly worded warning from China against any possible meeting between the Dalai Lama and US President Barack Obama.

"From our perspective, we feel the role of the United States is to facilitate a just and honest dialogue between the Dalai Lama's envoys and the government of China," said the exiled government's spokesman, Thubten Samphel.

"So there is nothing wrong in a meeting between the president and His Holiness," Samphel told AFP.

His remarks followed a warning from China that any decision by Obama to meet Tibet's exiled spiritual leader when he visits the US later this month would "seriously undermine the political foundation of Sino-US relations."

AFP has contributed to the report.
