Dalai Lama Calls for Peaceful solution in Iraq - 2003-01-16

Dalai Lama said Thursday that weapons of mass destruction must be eliminated but a peaceful solution should be found to avoid war in Iraq. “I prefer that violence or war should not take place,” the Tibetan spiritual leader told reporters before rituals marking the five-day Kalachakra Initiation, which has drawn more than 100,000 Buddhist to Bodh Gaya. The Dalai Lama said that producing weapons of mass destruction --- “that is very bad. If there is some way to stop that, that is in the interest of the Iraqi people and the whole area.”
