Dalai Lama: Russians are great nation
Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama said Russians are a great nation, speaking with the Russian newspaper Kommersant in New Delhi after his first-ever joint conference with leading Russian neuroscientists and philosophers.
"I believe in Russia's bright future. Russia, indeed, might become a real bridge between East and West," Sputnik cited the Dalai Lama as saying.
"You know, my dream is that NATO headquarters be relocated to Moscow. According to the Russian mentality, NATO is perceived as the symbol of a hostile force. If the headquarters of the Alliance were shifted to Moscow, it could allay whatever misapprehensions and evoke feelings that from then on, Russians and Americans are together! However, now I am afraid that I won't be allowed into the US after such a suggestion," the Tibetan spiritual leader added.
