The Dalai Lama, who is opposed to the use of weapons and all forms of violence as a means to resolve conflict, has offered his support via his office in exile in Dharamsala.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner is renowned for his support for environmental and human rights campaigns and his strict adherence to the principles of non-violence have won him recognition around the world.

He firmly believes that violence begets violence and therefore it is no solution to a lasting settlement of conflicts; believing instead in the settlement of conflicts through dialogue and compromise so that a lasting solution is found without one being the victor and other the loser.
