The spiritual leader of Tibet, the Dali Lama, told an audience in Sweden that refugees should return to their homelands to rebuild and that “Europe belongs to Europeans.”
His says his stance comes from a position of compassion, and he added that westerners have a “moral responsibility” to help refugees.
“Receive them, help them, educate them… but ultimately they should develop their own country,” he said. “I think Europe belongs to the Europeans.”
“They [refugees] ultimately should rebuild their own country.”
