Dalai Lama on solution to refugee crisis – genuine peace

At start of UK trip, spiritual leader praises German and Austrian response to crisis but declines to criticise British plan to take only 20,000 refugees over five years

On the account that, according Dalai Lama:

“You have to consider many factors, whether you can take care of these people,” he said, adding that Britain was a small country and “you have to be practical”.

Moreover, the spiritual leader, who has been living in exile to India since 1959, criticizes China’s “politics of suppression” because it hinders people from expressing their opinion.
