The Dalai Lama is a sincere concern for Obama on the situation in Tibet

The President Barack Obama met Saturday at the White House with the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, despite China's protests about the previous meeting. Beijing stated Friday that the Tibetan religious leader uses these visits to "divide" the country. To try to mitigate the anger of the Chinese government, Obama tried to subtract some officers to the meeting.

Therefore, according to U.S. media, the meeting took place in the Oval Office, but in another room of the White House. The press had no access to the event. After the meeting, the Dalai Lama told the AFP news agency that Obama had shown a "genuine concern" about the situation of human rights in Tibet.

The Dalai Lama on Saturday concluded a visit to Washington eleven days, during which he presided over a massive spiritual event for peace.
