After meeting Obama, Dalai Lama chides "childish" China policy on Tibet

WASHINGTON (AP) -- After his meeting with
President Barack Obama, the Dalai Lama is chiding
China for its "childish" and "limited" approach
to Tibetan efforts for greater rights within China.

The Dalai Lama told reporters Thursday that he
expected a negative, scolding Chinese reaction to
his meeting with Obama. China considers the exiled monk a separatist.

But he says he is not frustrated that there has
been so little progress on Tibetans' demands for greater autonomy.

He says that Tibetans will never give up on their
cause, even if progress comes after his lifetime.

The spiritual leader of Tibet's Buddhists was
greeted at his hotel by a large crowd of
supporters who wept, prostrated themselves and
chanted "Thank you, Obama" and "Long live the Dalai Lama."
