May 1st, 2018 by admin

April 30, 2018, Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, HP, India – His Holiness the Dalai Lama has written separately to the North Korean and South Korean leaders to congratulate them on the pledge they made following recent talks to work to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons and turn the armistice that ended the Korean War into a peace treaty this year.

As an avowed campaigner for demilitarization throughout the world and the complete elimination of all nuclear weapons,” he wrote, “I wholeheartedly welcome the outcome of your discussions to secure lasting peace on the Korean peninsula.

Seeing the immense suffering caused by war and violence in so many different parts of the world is deeply distressing. What [you] have shown is that taking a genuinely peaceful approach and entering into dialogue is the only way to achieve friendship, trust and peace.

I profoundly hope these positive developments will contribute to concerted efforts to do away with these dreadful weapons everywhere and secure genuine and enduring peace in our world.

I am confident the international community solidly supports the positive steps that [you] have taken.”

His Holiness the Dalai Lama Welcomes Steps towards Nuclear Disarmament

April 22, 2018, New Delhi, India – I welcome North Korea’s announcement that it will halt nuclear and missile tests with immediate effect. I am particularly encouraged that this move is taking place in the context of efforts to achieve agreement through dialogue.

It is my hope that the forthcoming meeting between the two Korean leaders, followed by a summit with the President of the USA, can take place in a spirit of amity, compromise, and transparency, enabling the resolution of past disagreements. I am optimistic that these talks will lead to the establishment of trust between the two Koreas resulting ultimately in the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Such a process, if successful, can serve as the model of a human approach to peace in the region. This in turn will have a deep impact on the elimination of nuclear weapons worldwide.

As an avowed campaigner for demilitarization throughout the world and the elimination of all nuclear weapons, I hope these positive developments will contribute to concerted efforts to do away with these dreadful weapons and secure genuine and lasting peace in our world.
