The report referred to the fact that the US Senate resolution had said the responsibility for identifying a future 15th Dalai Lama only rested with officials of the 14th Dalai Lama’s private office and any interference from the Chinese government is invalid.

Citing this, Hua has maintained, “The resolution reflects that some people in the United States have always been inexplicably ignorant and arrogant.”

She has emphasized that a “living Buddha’s” reincarnation should follow China’s laws and regulations and should not be interfered with by anybody or any foreign country.
