Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal despite China's warning

• atimes.com

Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama will visit Arunachal Pradesh next month as scheduled despite China's warning it could harm Sino-Indian ties and peace in the border region between the neighbors.

During his April 4-13 visit, the Dalai Lama will meet his followers including federal Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju at Tawang monastery, the largest in India and the second largest in the world.

Rijiju represents the Arunachal West constituency, which covers the Tawang district.

Commenting on China's "grave concern" over the Dalai Lama's Arunachal visit, he said India's interests came first for the federal government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
