Dalai Lama Approves of Nobel Pick

October 13th 2010

Narita, Chiba Prefecture, Japan, 13 October 2010 (Kyodo) - The 2010 Nobel Peace Prize went to the "right person" at the "right moment," the Dalai Lama said, adding the move could serve as a "significant contribution for changing China."

During a brief stopover Monday at Narita International Airport en route to the United States, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader criticized the Chinese government for its opposition to awarding the Nobel to jailed dissident Liu Xiaobo, saying China must change but some "hardliners" are stuck in an "old way of thinking."

The Dalai Lama, who won the peace prize in 1989, said the Chinese government does "not appreciate . . . different opinions at all," and that building an open, transparent society is "the only way to save all people of China."
