Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama will visit Britain next week and again in September but will not meet any officials, his office said on Thursday, just ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's trip to the country in October.
The Dalai Lama will speak at the Glastonbury Festival - one of Europe's largest music festivals - during his June 27-30 trip, said Wangdue Tsering, London-based secretary of the Office of Tibet, one of Dalai Lama's representative offices in Europe.
The Dalai Lama is also due to give a talk on Buddhism in Aldershot, a town to the southwest of London.
Wangdue Tsering told Reuters that the Dalai Lama would not meet any officials during his trip and that his office did not request any meetings.
His September trip will include a public talk, but no other details have been released yet.
President Xi's October state visit is the first to Britain in a decade by a Chinese head of state.Last Mod: 25 Haziran 2015, 15:03
