Obama's face time with the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader stands to upset China, which is already on edge about the Dalai Lama's meetings with congressional leaders and the potential for a U.S. debt default. YOUR VIEWS ?
The Dalai Lama, in addition to being a religious leaders, is one of the nicest human beings living on this earth today. President Obama and other world leaders should not bother about upsetting China on this issue. They should honour the Dalai Lama and other world leaders who stand for peace in the world. All should support the Tibetans because these hard working and peaceful people have wrongly been displaced from their homeland.

White House meeting comes at an extra sensitive moment for China, the US biggest creditor, with leaders in Washington at odds over how to raise the $14,300bn debt ceiling in time to avoid default. China holds more than $1,000bn in Treasury debt and would be particularly exposed should Congress fail to reach a deal by August 2. A US default could rocket up interest rates, sink the value of the dollar and hurt the global economy. Beijing has urged Washington to adopt responsible policies and measures to guarantee the interests of investors. Obama has asked for congressional leaders to give him proposals by Saturday on how to advance talks on a deal.
