Hillary Clinton meets Dalai Lama
08:42, February 20, 2010  

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday met with the Dalai Lama in Washington.

Earlier in the day, U.S. President Barack Obama met the Dalai Lama in Washington in spite of China's strong opposition.

Originally named Lhamo Thondup, the Dalai Lama was conferred the title of the 14th Dalai Lama in 1940.

After launching and having failed an armed rebellion in March 1950, he fled to India and formed a so-called "Tibet government in exile."

In the guise of religion, the Dalai Lama has since then been involved in activities aimed to split China and to undermine Tibet's social stability.
