Dalai Lama Resents Donald Trump's 'America First' Policy

"The exit of Britain (from European Union) was the people's choice, but EU is something Africa, the America and even Asia can follow. I admire Germany for sticking to EU despite a very strong Deutsche Mark," the Dalai Lama said.

Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh): Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Saturday said he was opposed to the US President Donald Trump's "America First Policy", which he believed was unbecoming of a country that encouraged free thinking.

"I disagree with the America First policy. It is unbecoming of a country that encourages free thinking," he told reporters after a discourse at the Yid-Ga-Choezin ground here attended by Buddhist Lamas and common people.

However, the Nobel laureate endorsed the European Union for pursuing policies directed at social cohesion and staying away from following the US practice of "anti-immigration and protectionism".

"The exit of Britain (from European Union) was the people's choice, but EU is something Africa, the America and even Asia can follow. I admire Germany for sticking to EU despite a very strong Deutsche Mark," the Dalai Lama said.

The 82-year-old spiritual leader also suggested that India, China and pakistan could have similar economic and cultural cooperation for greater stability in the region.
