Obama Meets With Dalai Lama at White House

President Obama met with the Dalai Lama at the White House Friday over the stern objection of China, which warned the meeting would "inflict grave damages" on the U.S. relationship with the Asian nation. 

Obama greeted the Dalai Lama while the Tibetan spiritual leader and fellow Nobel laureate was in the U.S. on a speaking tour. The meeting was closed to photographers, and, unlike during some previous visits, the Dalai Lama departed the White House without speaking to reporters.
