The Dalai Lama, a spiritual leader exiled in Tibet, has said that Chinese leaders do not understand the diversity in different cultures. Along with this, he said that the ruling Communist Party’s efforts for strict social control in China could prove detrimental. The Dalai Lama said this during a press conference organized by the Tokyo Foreign Correspondence Club in Japan.

The 86-year-old Buddhist cleric also said that I want to stay in India in the future rather than get into some kind of complicated politics with China. The Dalai Lama has lived in India since 1959 after a failed rebellion against China. He further said that Tibet is completely Buddhist and that the Chinese government is officially led by the atheist Communist Party.

Regarding the possibility of meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, the Dalai Lama said that I have no such plans. He declined to comment on Xi’s plans for a third consecutive term as president. “China’s communist leaders do not understand the diversity of different cultures. In fact, too much control will be detrimental to the people.

The Dalai Lama retired from politics in 2011, but he remains a major force in preserving Tibetan traditions. China regards Tibet as its territory and views the Dalai Lama as an advocate for Tibetan independence, which it opposes. China has not had direct contact with the Dalai Lama’s representatives for more than a decade.

The Dalai Lama says that I am only the custodian of the autonomy of Tibet and the local Buddhist culture. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin has said that our doors are open for talks with the Dalai Lama, but that we will not discuss the situation in Tibet. In recent times, China has stepped up its campaign of religious control and targeted minorities.
