Dalai Lama returning to Scotland
Mon Nov 7,12:36 PM ET
LONDON (AFP) - The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama will be in Scotland at the end of next week, his second visit there in 18 months, a spokesman for the Tibet government in exile said.
He will be in the Scottish capital on November 18-19 where he will meet journalists, attend an educators' conference, hold a dialogue on ethics, and join a global conference of parliamentarians interested in Tibetan affairs.
He will then travel to Belfast on November 20 for a series of events in the Northern Ireland capital, the spokesman told AFP in London.
The Dalai Lama, 70, has lived in India since he fled from Chinese troops in 1959, basing his government-in-exile in the hill-top northern Indian town of Dharamsala.
He paid a four-day visit to Scotland in May 2003 after spending a day in London.
His upcoming visit will come on the heels of a state visit to Britain by Chinese President Hu Jintao from Tuesday which opponents of Chinese rule in Tibet intend to protest at every turn.
