Dharamsala, May 30 - His Holiness the Dalai Lama called on the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen and Foreign Minister, Mr. Per Stig Møller, yesterday in two separate meetings upon his arrival in the Danish capital Copenhagen. Prime Minister Rasmussen said he was pleased to meet with the Tibetan leader.

Rasmussen said there are not many Buddhists in Denmark but many Danish people admire and have great respect for His Holiness. Denmark supports human rights for the Tibetan people, he said. His Holiness was accompanied at the meeting by his Secretary Tenzin Taklha and London-based Representative Mr. Tsering Tashi.

The 73 year old Tibetan leader left his north Indian home Thursday for Denmark to give teachings and a public talk on "Peace Through Inner Peace."

His Holiness said that all his trips abroad are spiritual and educational in nature and that in this connection he tries to fulfill his two main commitments of promoting warm-heartedness as a member of the same human family and inter-religious harmony as a religious practitioner, according to the Office of Tibet, London, which is coordinating His Holiness’ visit.

The meeting between His Holiness and the Danish Foreign Minister focused mainly on the Tibet situation, said Office of Tibet, London.

His Holiness is scheduled to address a press conference today. Tibetans and Danish supporters gave a warm welcome to His Holiness at his hotel. This is the Tibetan leader’s eighth visit to the Scandinavian country with the first taking place in 1973.
