Of late various news services have been suggesting that the former Tibetan prime minister had made a private visit to China and hinted that His Holiness the Dalai Lama might be headed for a China visit. However, to clear out all dusts, Professor Samdhong Rinpoche clarified in a recent interview with a major news paper that all those are just rumors and nothing else.
The former prime minister of Tibetan government in exile, Professor Samdhong Rinpoche answered about whether the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama planning on private China visit as being speculated, he told the Amar Ujala news reporter that His Holiness is not planning on any visit to China!
While The Tribune reporter had earlier mistook a statement of the President Lobsang Sangay while speaking in at an interactive session in New Delhi. It was then mistakenly reported that His Holiness the Dalai Lama had made a private visit to China while the Tibetan president implied to say that the report of Prof. Samdhong Rinpoche making a private visit to China in November was just a report and no further information.
However, the report about such an interaction between the Dalai Lama and China is being spread wide across the internet and news media around world. Many people also suggested that the Tibetan spiritual leader has been working desperately to come to an agreement with China by citing his recent activities such as appointment of his envoys, announcing no international trips.
But the truth is something else! The former prime minister during the interview even confirmed that the news reports about his China visit in November has no truth in it and they are nothing more than just media speculations.
