Dalai Lama against 'thrusting war' on Iraq

Bodh Gaya (Bihar), (PTI), Jan 16:

Describing war as an organised and legalised form of violence, Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, today disfavoured "thrusting" war on Iraq as it would only lead to destruction.

The Dalai Lama, who is here for the ongoing Kalchakra puja, called war an organised and legalised form of violence which would create more problems than it would solve.

"War will lead to a trail of destruction. ..and it will definitely have its impact on other countries", he said replying to a question on the continuing stand-off between the US and Iraq.

The Dalai Lama also said he wanted China to grant meaningful autonomy to Tibet.

"I had sent a delegation to China recently following a positive change in its attitude towards Tibet", he said adding efforts aimed at getting autonomy would continue.
