Today the Dalai Lama meets with President Barack Obama at White House behind Close Doors. President Barack Obama is welcoming the Dalai Lama in to talk about current events. This stirs up huge controversy from the Chinese government. China responded to the meet and greet as it would ” inflict grave damages” on the U.S.A and China’s relationship with each other. The U.S. has not responded to China and continues to meet with the Dalai Lama. China thinks that the Dalai Lama is talking about anti-chinese thoughts.China is recommending that that White House not open there doors to the Dalai Lama because of his religious beliefs. Still the United States pushed on with the meeting and Obama was open ears behind closed doors. Not even the press was let into the room. Only a select amount of people. What did they talk about? What did they not talk about?
“The U.S. leader’s planned meeting with Dalai is a gross interference in China’s domestic politics, It is a severe violation of the principles of international relations it will inflict grave danger upon the China-U.S. relationship.” said Hua Chunying
This is not the first time Obama has met with the Dalai Lama got together in 2010 and 2011. Barack Obama will hold the meeting the map room where the two of them normally meet.
The Dalai Lama is highly respected as a promoter in nonviolence, but China places responsibility on the Dalai Lama for the self-immolations by Tibetans within the Chinese boarders in the past years. This has the Chinese government looking at the Dalai Lama as an outcasted enemy.
The Dalai Lama is on a speaking tour and happened to make the White House one of his stops along the way. What do you think about this secret meeting behind close doors?
The Map Room: Primarily used as a meeting room for the President and First Lady, the Map Room was used as a war room by President Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II. Early maps of Washington, DC hang in the room, as well as a case of world maps presented by the National Geographic Society and the last situation map prepared in the room for Roosevelt in 1945. From a meeting between President Obama and His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama to a classical music workshop with renowned musicians and local music students – the Map Room serves a number of purposes today.
“The United States supports the Dalai Lama’s ‘Middle Way’ approach of neither assimilation nor independence for Tibetans in China,” said Caitlin Hayden
