Dalai Lama’s appeal for peace came amid the standoff between the Indian and Chinese force in Doklam
“Eventually, ‘Hindi-Chini- Bhai Bhai’ is the only way; the two big nations, you have to live side by side,” Dalai Lama said while attending a programme here.
He said he likes India as there is freedom in this country and he has more opportunity to share.
“There is freedom in this country, I can do more and have more opportunity to share. Where there is no freedom, I don’t like,” he said.
He also added that as per the wish of Chinese people, the Communist Party of China may follow his practice of democracy.
“Our small Tibetan community fully practices democracy and I am an admirer of democracy. People are real rulers of a country and free press is important to inform & educate people about reality,” he added.
The Dalai Lama’s appeal for peace came amid the standoff between the Indian and Chinese force in Doklam.
The stand-off between both the countries emerged after Chinese troops were stopped by the Indian Army from constructing roads along the Doklam border.
On August 8, State-run media in China said that if the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Government continues to ignore the warning coming from a situation spiraling out of control in the Doklam region, Beijing would activate unavoidable counter-measures to restore its right over territory.
