Dalai Lama: India an important nation, can keep nuclear weapon
Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama said that although he did not support nuclear weapons but certain nations could keep it for safety for all. Dalai Lama was in Ghaziabad as the chief guest in a school function when he was asked about the civil nuclear cooperation between India and the United States, which has been revived by US President Barack Obama's visit. The Dalai Lama said that he considered India as a huge and populous nation and hence it had a right to keep nuclear weapon. Meanwhile, Dalai Lama added that India was a great country because of its cultural diversity and the young generation was the future and hope of the nation.
