Barack Obama met with Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at the White House today. His Holiness posted a photo of the meeting to Facebook:
China, of course, has stated its displeasure about the US receiving or honoring the Dalai Lama; as The Tibet Post reports, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a news briefing yesterday that
We demand the US government earnestly stands by its promises, conscientiously handle the relevant issue in accordance with the one China principle and not give any space to any individual or behavior which tries to create two Chinas, one China one Taiwan, or to split China.
News media were not given access to cover the meeting.
