Barack Obama Cancels Meeting With The Dalai Lama

Obama will become the first president since Bush senior to not meet the Dalai Lama when he comes to visit Washington DC. The reason is reported as pressure from China.


"The decision came after China stepped up a campaign urging nations to shun the Tibetan spiritual leader.

It means Mr Obama will become the first president not to welcome the Nobel peace prize winner to the White House since the Dalai Lama began visiting Washington in 1991.
