Washington -- The United States has thanked India
for extending hospitality to Tibetan spiritual
leader, the Dalai Lama, a comment and a situation
that isn't going to please China, which views the
latter as a renegade and a splitist.

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on
Monday thanked India for extending hospitality to
the Dalai Lama, saying: "India is a country that is value based."

These were the welcoming remarks that she made
while receiving Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at Capitol Hill.

She said that from Martin Luther King who
received inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi, to the
present generation, Americans have learnt "about
non-violence and how to get results (by using non violence).

Pelosi invited the Prime Minister to revisit the
US soon and address the joint session of Congress.

She also made a mention of the Mumbai attacks
saying "Almost one year to the day when India
suffered the terrible loss of Mumbai, we gather
today to see how we can learn from that experience."
