Dalai Lama’s representative critical of Oslo snub

TibetanReview.net, May03, 2014) Norway’s top political leaders may have felt compelled to decide to refuse to meet with the Dalai Lama when he visits Oslo from May 7 to 9 due to the urgency to improve business relations with China. However, to the exile Tibetan leadership, this step is a wrong signal both to Tibetans in Tibet and to other countries’ leaders, and it negatively impacts Norway’s moral standing.

“What I think the Norwegian government should consider is that by not meeting the Dalai Lama, they are sending a chilling signal to Tibetans in Tibet, and that is exactly what the Chinese want,” thelocal.no May 2 quoted the Dalai Lama’s London-based representative Mr Thubten Samdup as having told the country’s broadcasting service NRK network.

He has also said that as a country which hosts and awards the Nobel Peace Prize, refusing to meet the Dalai Lama would set a “wrong precedence” for other countries.
