Dalai Lama addresses European Parliament

The Dalai Lama addressed approximately 600 members of European Parliament today during a Plenary Session in Brussels. The Dalai Lama spoke on human values and the fate of Tibet. Commenting on European countries' relations with China, the Dalai Lama said that while it is important to maintain close ties, "if you are a true friend you will make clear your friend's faults".
