Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama

Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama (R) talks with French Foreign Affairs minister Bernard Kouchner (C) during the inauguration of the Buddhist Lerab Ling temple in Roqueredonde, southern France on August 22, 2008. Planned more than two years ago, the Dalai Lama's 12-day French visit turned political after a Chinese crackdown on unrest in Tibet in March that sparked international outrage. President Nicolas Sarkozy declined to meet the Dalai Lama, sparking accusations from the opposition Socialists that "the only guiding principle (of Sarkozy's policy towards China) appears to be not to displease Beijing." Also pictured, Sogyal Rinpoche (L), director of the Buddhist temple Lerab Ling and French human rights minister Rama Yade (2R).
