Dalai Lama accused of siding with Japan over island dispute

| No Comments

China blames the Dalai Lama for a wave of self-immolations among Tibetans, accusing him of glorifying the problem, the Washington Post reported today.

The BBC reported that he spoke in Japan and was quoted as saying that China was not looking at the causes of the protests seriously enough.

According to the BBC, the Tibetan activists say they are protesting against Beijing's rule. More than 70 protesters have set themselves on fire since 2011.

The Washington Post reported that China also accuses the Dalai Lama of siding with the Japanese over the territorial island dispute, because they say he called the island by the Japanese name instead of the Chinese name.
