(TibetanReview.net, Oct15’19) – The Dalai Lama has reiterated Oct 14 the possibility that he may visit China and Tibet in the near future, more than sixty years after he fled his homeland and Chinese troops bombarded his Lhasa palace.

“It is very possible. Within the next two or three years,” the tribuneindia.com Oct 14 quoted him as saying, addressing the media after he was conferred an honorary doctorate of literature at Chitkara University in Rajpura, a municipal council in Patiala district of Punjab.

He has added that India would remain his permanent place of residence as it offered freedom while there was ‘no freedom’ in China.

“India is a democratic country while China is governed by the party (Communist Party of China). There is no proper rule of law. But I love China, particularly the Buddhists there, and I want to visit and help them,” he was quoted as saying.

The Dalai Lama had expressed similar hope in a media interview in the beginning of this month.

“Things are changing, things are changing,” livemint.com report Oct 2 quoted him as saying, adding, “I think within one year or two years, there is possibility (of) my visit to China.”
