Question: President Obama was the first President since 1991 to defer on a meeting with the Dalai Lama (during his visit to Washington D.C). Supporters say it is more important to open new relations with China first and work with helping Tibet once better ties are established. Opponents say it was a symbolic set-back in religious freedom and human rights. Do you agree, disgagree with President Obama’s decision?
