McCain Meets With Dalai Lama as Olympics Near

From Wall Street Journal:

With the Beijing Olympics just two weeks away, Sen. John McCain brought China to the forefront of the foreign-policy debate Friday by meeting with the Dalai Lama.

Despite a recent focus on Europe and the Middle East because of Sen. Barack Obama’s overseas trip, China is likely to dominate the news coverage in the coming weeks as the Games get under way.

The Republican presidential contender sat down with the exiled Tibetan spiritual and political leader in Aspen, Colo., to discuss “issues of mutual concern,” a McCain aide said, including talks between the and China, as well as how “the international community can best support the Dalai Lama in his efforts.”

After the meeting with the Dalai Lama, Sen. McCain offered tough criticisms of China and urged its leaders to show more progress in addressing political grievances.
