French President Nicolas Sarkozy, whose country holds the EU presidency, said on Thursday that he will meet the Dalai Lama next month during a visit to Poland.

"The Dalai Lama is a distinguished man, a man who inspires profound respect and I will have the opportunity to see him in Poland on December 6", Sarkozy said.

The Tibetan spiritual leader and Sarkozy will both be attending ceremonies in Poland to mark the 25th anniversary of the awarding of the Nobel Peace prize to Lech Walesa, the anti-communist union activist who later became president.
