In my analysis, the Dalai Lama’s proposed meeting with Xi Jinping in New Delhi during 2014 was not approved by the United States. It must be understood that the asylum granted to the Dalai Lama has certain terms and conditions approved by the United States. The Dalai Lama is not free to act unilaterally without getting approval of the United States and India. The Great Tibet Problem stays on the Back Burner while Red China continues her policy of Expansionism.

Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to meet the Dalai Lama during a 2014 visit to India but a "cautious" Delhi did not allow it to happen, a new book has claimed.

The 83-year-old Buddhist monk has made India his home since fleeing the Tibetan capital Lhasa in 1959 — and has been a thorn in Beijing’s side ever since.

"In 2014, when Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Delhi for talks with Prime Minister Modi, I requested a meeting with him," author Sonia Singh quotes the Dalai Lama as saying.

"President Xi Jinping agreed, but the Indian government was cautious about the meeting, so it didn’t happen," according to excerpts from the book published Wednesday.

In the book "Defining India – Through Their Eyes", Singh said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government was concerned about maintaining good relations with China.

The Dalai Lama’s personal spokesman Tenzin Taklha told AFP he didn’t have any comments to make, without either confirming or denying the contents in the book.

The Dalai Lama set up a government-in-exile in Dharamsala in northern India and launched a campaign to reclaim Tibet that gradually evolved into an appeal for greater autonomy — the so-called "middle way" approach.

India, which gave him asylum in 1959, has supported the Tibetan leader but of late the government has maintained a distance, citing diplomatic sensitivities.

Singh, the editorial director of NDTV news channel, says the meeting had the "promise to change the course of China-Tibet relations" if it had been allowed to happen.

The Dalai Lama is also quoted as saying he had "very good relations" with Modi, who is seeking a second term in the ongoing general election.

"He is quite an active Indian prime minister, continuously visiting many countries. That, I admire at his age."

A global symbol of peace, the Dalai Lama was briefly hospitalized for a chest infection in Delhi last month.

The book is set to be released on May 20.
