Why does President Obama ignore the Dalai Lama?
“Most important are probably financial relations between China and the United States,” said Pinkerton. “Presumably they have ambitions for the Chinese to help them on climate change, Iran and so on. And they’ve made a calculation: Look, China can help us with those problems but the Dalai Lama cannot.”
The US President will meet the Tibetan leader after his November visit to Beijing for talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao.
